Mount Sinai, NY – May 1st, 2013 – In celebration of Earth Day, Legislator Sarah Anker attended the unveiling of the Suffolk County Water Authority’s kiosk at the Mount Sinai Heritage Park. The educational kiosk was designed by the Suffolk County Water Authority to inform visitors about the source of Long Island’s water, which is stored in an underground aquifer. The display includes a diagram of the water cycle and information about how aquifer system was formed.
“Suffolk County Water Authority provides our residents with clean, safe water from our sole source aquifer,” said Legislator Anker. “This display will create environmental awareness to our residents on where our water comes from and will help promote the importance of water conservation.”
Legislator Anker is a member of the Environmental Planning and Agriculture Committee as well as the Suffolk County Soil and Water Conservation Committee.
