  • Collecting best practices for sustainable water use and protection
  • Helping the Town create community outreach materials and demonstration sites to educate residents, businesses, landscapers, and agricultural groups about these best practices
  • Collaborating with conservation organizations for maximum effectiveness in public education
  • Working with Southold Town schools and camps to adopt water awareness education as part of their science curriculums
  • Suggesting action items regarding water conservation to the Town Board
