Flush with county cash, library gets new septic system

The Bayport-Blue Point Public Library received a $250,000 grant from Suffolk County towards a new wastewater system.

The new system, which replaces two outdated sanitary systems, is designed to remove much of the nitrogen in wastewater before it enters surrounding groundwater, estuaries, and ponds.

Since Long Island depends entirely upon underground water for its drinking water supply, the regional environmental community has widely encouraged adoption of these advanced systems and has applauded the library for its efforts in this regard.
