The Suffolk County Water Authority will hold the third installment of its public education initiative focusing on groundwater quality and conservation called WaterTalk at the John Jermain Library on Main St. in Sag Harbor on Wednesday, June 7 from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

The forum will feature SCWA laboratory and hydrogeology water quality experts and offer residents the opportunity to ask questions about any water quality issue that concerns them.

Panelists include SCWA Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Operations Joseph Pokorny, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Lead Hydrogeologist Ty Fuller and Laboratory Project Manager Fil Sinni.

“With so much information out there about groundwater quality and the status of the aquifer system that provides all of our drinking water, we wanted to give residents throughout our service territory the opportunity to ask questions directly to our on-staff water quality experts,” said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo. “We feel we can help residents better understand what the most significant challenges to our aquifers are and, most importantly, what we can all do to ensure that our aquifers are protected for future generations of Suffolk residents.”
