      Overview: Long Island’s sole source aquifer system provides the Island’s residents with % of their drinking water. Both the quality and quantity of the water in this underground aquifer system is directly impacted by what we do on the surface. Currently, Long Island is experiencing a rapid rise in contaminants in our aquifer system. The drinking water on Long Island has “by far” the most emerging contaminants of any region in the state, according to a review of detections of the substances by the New York Public Interest.

      A DEC report on Long Island's groundwater found that pumping at the then-active Queens wells resulted "in serious effects on the aquifer in that area and in underground water flow across the. Located in southeastern Queens, the groundwater supply system consists of 67 supply wells at 43 well stations and several water storage tanks. Most of the system has not operated in more than 14 years, but the groundwater system did provide water to a limited .

      Section 2 Nassau County’s Groundwater System All groundwater systems are dynamic – they respond to groundwater withdrawal and any other stresses imposed on the system by always seeking a new state of equilibrium, or balance, between water flowing into the system and water flowing out of the system. After many years spent.   Water Deeply. Plants readily respond to their environment. To encourage strong root growth, it’s best to water deeply and less often, rather than give a light watering every few days. Light, shallow waterings only allow water to penetrate the first few inches of the ground — even with Long Island’s sandy, quick-draining soil.
