“Speaking on behalf of this outstanding NSWCA Board, we are looking forward to a very active year in 2019,” President Rich stated. “There has been a great upsurge in interest about Long Island’s water and aquifer as well as conservation and long term sustainability, which is long overdue. Ensuring purity and supply while protecting our sole source aquifer requires continual education. As the suppliers closest to the water, the NSWCA plans expansionof our Educational Series and Seminars in 2019 to provide Commissioners from all 21 member districts and the public they serve with the latest scientific and environmental information relating to Long Island water issues and concerns.”
