Upton, NY, June 2013 – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended the Long Island Green Infrastructure Conference and Expo at Brookhaven National Lab on Wednesday, June 12. The conference addressed the ways that ecofriendly technologies can be implemented to manage water quality issues and energy efficiency on Long Island.

“When looking to the future of Long Island, we must determine which options are not only sustainable, but also cost effective,” said Legislator Anker. “Based on the success stories heard today, I’m hopeful that we can use green technology not only to improve the quality of life in our area but to also save money in doing so.”

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines green infrastructure as a way of using nature (usually vegetation and soil) to manage storm water runoff and green energy as a process that produces energy with little or no pollution.
