There’s a lot going on all around the North Fork. So instead of only touching upon a few concerns each issue, Snapshots will be a periodic look at all of these happenings in a brief and concise few paragraphs. The goal is to give you a better picture of local issues, what we’re doing and what you can do.

Have any thoughts about this new approach? Let us know. And if you have issues you want to hear more about, let us know that, too.

Solution to Our Water Issues Must Begin With Conversation, Cooperation and Consensus

The Problems that Exist in the World Today,
Cannot be Solved by the Level of Thinking that Created Them

We have growing water problems on Long Island, along with a population of 3 million, which is also growing.
While residents, environmental groups and politicians are speaking out, they are speaking out of turn. Before effective solutions can be proposed, we need scientists to research and define the problems and then, help develop appropriate steps. We can’t rush the process.

The groups of The Community Planning Center, North Fork Environmental Council, Peconic Baykeeper and Sea Run Brook Trout Coalition have come together to ask the public, environmental groups and politicians to understand the need for a better approach to problem solving. We ask you to take a moment to read this article and ask, no demand, that tackle this problem with conversation, cooperation and consensus, starting with scientific research, not rhetoric.
