On July 19, CCOM met with partners Surfrider Foundation Eastern Long Island and Peconic Baykeeper at Long Beach in Sag Harbor. Our three organizations together are the Blue Water Task Force for the East End. The purpose of this gathering was to announce the release of the 2021 Blue Water Task Force Water Quality Report. The report provides an analysis of our year-round water quality monitoring results from over 70 sites on the North and South Forks. In 2021, we jointly tested 1,625 samples. Results can be viewed in the 2021 report, which can be found here.

“Often times our data help drive change. We identify problem areas, work with partners and government to direct appropriate resources, and then help track the effectiveness of remediation efforts,” said CCOM President Laura Tooman.
