Water is important in everything we do. Our approach to monitoring and maintaining it is woven through all of our projects.
Seven Wells, Five Sites
In partnership with USGS, Shinnecock Environmental Department monitors salt water intrusion via seven wells located on the territory and use of sondes collecting information such as DO (Dissolved Oxygen), ORP (Oxygen Reduction Potential), Salinity, pH, Barometric Pressure and Temperature at five testing sites.
In the future, we'll also be collecting data on the amounts of aluminum, copper, iron, nitrate, nitrite and phosphates in our waters.
