WNYC reports on causes of nitrogen pollution on LI

Nancy Kelley, Long Island Chapter director of The Nature Conservancy, describes a recent study by scientists from Stony Brook University and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution  which found that the largest land-based source of nitrogen pollution in our rivers and bays is wastewater from individual septic systems and cesspools.

Dr. Christopher J. Gobler, a professor at Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, specializes in coastal change and how aquatic ecosystems are affected by humans.  His 2015 presentation on the causes and impacts of nitrogen pollution on Long Island’s coastal waters provides a succinct overview of how population growth and wastewater treatment practices have contributed to impairment of our waterways and loss of wetlands.
