Tonight, Suffolk County Water Authority will host its popular WaterTalk education program at Deer Park High School at 6:00 p.m.
WaterTalk focuses on groundwater quality, water conservation and other relevant water topics. Most importantly WaterTalk is an opportunity for SCWA customers to ask our experts their water questions. Tonight’s program will feature SCWA executive, operations, laboratory, and hydrogeology staff.
WaterTalk will begin with opening remarks from SCWA Chairman James F. Gaughran about what the initiative seeks to accomplish as well as presentations from SCWA Chief Engineer Tim Kilcommons, Lead Hydrogeologist Ty Fuller and Laboratory Manager Tom Schneider.
SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo speaks during a WaterTalk event in 2017 at the East Hampton Library.
"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 Gaughran. "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 for current and future generations of Suffolk residents."
The Suffolk County Water Authority is an independent public-benefit corporation operating under the authority of the Public Authorities Law of the State of New York. Serving approximately 1.2 million Suffolk County residents, the Authority operates without taxing power on a not-for-profit basis.
