Peconic Green Growth, with a Suffolk Community Service Initiative grant from Legislator Ed Romaine, has
developed a draft methodology for either counties or towns to identify the need for upgraded decentralized
wastewater treatment that meets more stringent environmental goals. Once every four years the EPA executes
a Clean Watershed Needs Survey, so it is hoped that jurisdictions will use this methodology based on existing
data sets, to recognize environmental issues and incorporate this need in the 2012 survey. Awareness of the
issues and shepherding of resources can then advance at all levels of society and government. A sample case
was developed with the the cooperation and input from the GIS and Planning Departments of the Town of
Southampton. The document below will be evolving over the next couple of weeks, with an expected launching in
November.
