Protecting our Water and Building Sewers

It’s no secret that Long Island has the most polluted drinking water in the state. The problems are many, including 1,4-dioxane, PFOA, and PFOS contamination, and nitrogen waste from our septic systems. Good government has many roles to play, including helping to pay for new sewers and cleaner septic systems, and establishing safety standards for pollution. In 2008, Lee Zeldin promised to break ground on a Mastic sewer project within 4 years of his election. In 2020, we are still waiting.

It’s time for action. Businesses in Suffolk County cannot develop fully without sewers, and we are poisoning our bays and inlets as we put off the inevitable. The time for action on sewers and other infrastructure is now.

As your congressman, I will work tirelessly to restore the federal role in fighting for our families and children, not the big polluters flourishing today:

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
