Water quality experts from the Suffolk County Water Authority presented and took questions from an audience of about 45 residents at SCWA’s latest WaterTalk education and outreach program, held at the Emma S. Clark Memorial Library in Setauket on November 5.
WaterTalk forums focus on groundwater quality, water conservation and other relevant water topics. Most importantly, they give SCWA customers the chance to speak directly to SCWA water quality professionals.
The most recent program featured remarks by SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo and Suffolk Legislator Kara Hahn and presentations by Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Operations Joseph Pokorny, Laboratory Manager Christopher Niebling and Water Resources Manager Steven Colabufo.
SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo presents to the crowd at the Emma S. Clark Memorial Library in Setauket, November 5th.
"With so much information circulating in public about groundwater quality and the status of the aquifer system that provides all of our drinking water, our goal is to give residents throughout our service territory the opportunity to ask questions directly to our on-staff water quality experts," said Szabo. "We feel we can help residents better understand what the most significant challenges to our aquifers are and, most importantly, what we can all do to ensure that our aquifers are protected now and in the future."
Be sure to follow SCWA on Facebook and Twitter for future WaterTalk dates.
