Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington

Programs tree iconEnvironmental Health

Since its inception, Residents has closely monitored an array of environmental issues and health hazards – both real and potential – facing our community. In our role as watchdog and advocate, we evaluate the environmental impact of local projects, interact with government agencies, obtain pertinent information and disseminate news to the public.  Our program initiatives include:

  • Successfully fighting the opening of a Hempstead Harbor mass-burn solid waste incinerator (Led by Myron Blumenfeld)
  • Assisting in the safe reopening of South Salem Elementary School (Led by Dan Donatelli and Paul Stewart)
  • Advocating for the remediation of various hazardous community sites (Led by Paul Stewart)
  • Formation and management of Peninsula Aquifer Committee, working with local government agencies to protect our ground water (Led by Paul Stewart)
