August 4, 2021 | Floating Wetlands & Water Quality Remediation | 4-5 PM
Please join us on Wednesday, August 4th from 4-5 pm to learn about our floating wetlands water remediation pilot installation in Montauk’s Fort Pond. In May 2021, CCOM, with help from Florida-based Beemats Floating Wetlands, local volunteers and a grant from East Hampton Town’s Community Preservation Water Quality Improvement Fund, moored 3000 sq. ft. of floating wetlands fitted with 7,200 wetland native plants in Montauk’s Fort Pond. As those plants mature, their roots will uptake excess nitrogen and phosphorus from the pond as food. The goal is to reduce the nutrient load in the pond to lessen the extent and severity of the harmful algal blooms (HABs) which have plagued Fort Pond for years.
