Water Quality

On April 25, 2024, residents of the Sagg Pond watershed, along with project supporters, public partners, and other community members, were invited to learn more about research and remediation work being conducted at Sagg Pond.

Dr. Chris Gobler, Director of the Center for Clean Water Technology (CCWT) at Stony Brook University, and Thomas Varley, watershed Manager for Georgica and Sagg Ponds, discussed I/A wastewater systems and the public funding available for homeowners to update antiquated septic systems. We heard from homeowners within the Sagg Pond Watershed who made the switch thanks to Tom’s help - and would happily go through the process again!

To learn more about this restoration effort, and to find out how you can lead the charge for a cleaner, safer Sagg Pond, watch the recording below.
