New plan announced to preserve Long Island Sound
A new plan was announced today in Mamaroneck aimed at protecting and preserving the Long Island Sound for future generations.
The sound was suffering due to overdevelopment, runoff and wastewater treatment plants, according to Westchester County Legislator Judy Meyers (D-Larchmont).
The plan focuses mainly on education since other important goals such as upgrading sewage treatment plants are already under way.
The plan also calls for work on cleaning up coastal areas of trash.
Officials say the plan won't cost taxpayers a thing.
