The Massapequa Preserve stream and drainage pond dredging is one step closer to being complete. The drainage pond in the preserve opposite the east end of Pittsburgh Avenue has taken on a new look. It appears to be much larger now that the dredging has cleared away the water grass, weeds and overhangng brush from its banks. Dredging of the pond's bottom will allow storm water funneled from the nearby street storm drains to be absorbed and to help to regenerate the estuaries and aquifers. Massapequa's water supply comes from ground water pumped from nine deep wells located throughout the Peaquas.
