Dear NCC Members,
Noyac Civic Council Encourages Community Involvement!
The Suffolk County Health Department just released a comprehensive investigative report on compost/vegetative organic waste management facilities (VOWM). In light of the fact that the Sand Land Mine and mulching facility is seeking to expand 40 feet closer to the top of our aquifer, our source of groundwater on the East End, this report is significant. The samples analyzed in this study document a range of contaminants including 19 pesticides, multiple metals (including arsenic, manganese, cadmium, thallium and cobalt), elevated radiological detections, and a range of pharmaceutical and personal care products which can be associated with the deposition of septic waste. The study also confirmed the contamination of private wells in excess of maximum contaminant levels for several analytes (Mn, Cu, Fe, Zn) at the only test site where residences were located in close proximity to the VOWM operations. Click here to download a copy of the report. The "Recommendations" on page 95 are noteworthy.
- Contact the NYSDEC to support the recommendations of this study: Email acting Commissioner Basil Seggos or call 518-402-8013.
- Send an email to your family and friends with this information.
NOTE: The Sand Land Mine's appeal of the DEC's denial of its application to expand is nearing a trial date. The NCC Executive Committee will represent you, the community, in this judicial process. We are currently waiting for the judge to rule.
