Glen Cove Merits Grant for Sound Improvements
Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp is pleased to announce that Glen Cove will receive $1,020,000 to supplement the city's ongoing commitment to protecting and improving water quality in Glen Cove Creek. "This series of Clean Water/Clean Air Bond Act funding, made public by Governor Pataki last week, facilitates the installation of an ultraviolet disinfecting unit at the city's wastewater treatment plant," said Mayor Holzkamp. "This technology will reduce chlorine residues in the water discharged to the creek thereby benefiting its shellfish and finfish populations and, by extension, Hempstead Harbor and Long Island Sound. It also saves operational money and improves conditions at the city's wastewater treatment plant."
