The Long Island Water Conference plays an active roll in the state and local legislative process to ensure the best interests of the public and its drinking water supply are always top of mind.

There are 5 key areas we are focusing on:

  1. Drinking Water Infrastructure Funding

  2. Provide adequate funding to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) Region 1 Water Division and NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) Bureau of Public Water Supply Protection

  3. Monitoring Well Registration and Water Quality Data Sharing

  4. Clarify the NYS Superfund Law to Financially Protect Public Water Ratepayers

  5. Clarify the One Call Notification System Law
