Surfrider Foundation – Eastern Long Island Chapter

Surfrider Foundation - Eastern Long Island Chapter
Surfrider Foundation’s Eastern Long Island Chapter routinely monitors 50 sites across Eastern Long Island, NY including bay and ocean beaches, lakes, ponds, and creeks. In partnership with two local environmental organizations, the Concerned Citizens of Montauk, and the Peconic Baykeeper, the Blue Water Task Force citizen science water testing program helps to fill in the gaps and extend the coverage of the Suffolk County Department of Health’s beach monitoring program.

The Blue Water Task Force tests both marine and freshwater sites for enterococcus, a coliform bacteria that indicates fecal pollution from animal or human sources. Results are compared to water quality criteria established by the EPA to protect public health in recreational waters.

Surfrider Foundation’s Eastern Long Island Chapter has been a strong advocate of public access and environmental preservation along our shoreline from Montauk Point to the Moriches Inlet for over 15 years. Staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers, the grassroots chapter has worked, and continues to work, with every level of government on resolving important coastal issues including coastal preservation, sea level rise, beach access and water quality.
