There has been significant progress cleaning up the Sound – and there is still more work to be done.

About the Summit

Historic public funding investments in our nation’s water infrastructure and natural resource resilience make this a critical moment to advance local actions that restore and protect cleaner, healthier water.

In response, the Long Island Sound Coastal Watershed Network is hosting its inaugural Long island Sound Summit on March 30, 2023 at Port Jefferson, NY.

Please plan to attend the Summit as we dive into new approaches and opportunities to target and reduce consumer plastics and debris, fecal bacteria, and nitrogen entering the Sound through stormwater, sewage, and groundwater. The Summit will be held in-person at the Village Center in Port Jefferson, NY.
