PORT JEFFERSON - Long Islanders got a first look at a new plan to preserve the Sound today.

Activists from Long Island and Connecticut and elected officials were on hand at the center dock in Port Jefferson Village to unveil a two-year blueprint for the restoration of the Long Island Sound.

They're hoping to create a thriving place for fish by encouraging people to not use fertilizer or pesticides that pollute the water.

Environmental experts say they also need funding to upgrade sewage infrastructure, improve water quality and restore the wetlands.
