LI group calls on leaders to fix water quality

Members of a Long Island group are calling on officials to take immediate action to improve the Island's water quality.



The Long Island Clean Water Partnership released a report that shows between May and September every major bay and estuary was afflicted by either a toxic algae bloom or oxygen-starved waters.

The group wants local, state and federal officials to look into ways to reduce nitrogen coming from septic systems and fertilizers.
