Ellinger. “We must work together to secure the support we need to invest and update our systems to protect the high quality water service our residents have come to expect and deserve.”

     Panel discussions featured representatives from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, United States Geological Survey, the Environmental Protection Agency and local water providers.
