Floating Wetlands Removal | October 2021


On Saturday, October 23rd, CCOM and volunteers worked together to remove our Fort Pond floating wetlands, a pilot water quality improvement project designed to remove excess nutrients which have been fueling seasonal harmful algal blooms in the Pond. The islands themselves will be stored for future re-use, and the harvested plants have made their way to the Montauk Community Garden for composting. A few samples will be sent to Hofstra University for analysis to quantify nutrient removal capacity. This project literally 'took a village'; we could not have done it without the help and generosity of our incredible community. A heartfelt thanks goes out to East Hampton Town, East Hampton Town Shellfish Hatchery, East Hampton Ocean Rescue, Mickey’s Carting, Gurney’s Resorts, the Montauk Community Garden, 7-11 Montauk, Montauk Surfcasters Association and the nearly 45 community volunteers who donated their Saturday to helping us. Together, we can help restore Montauk's waters! THANK YOU! (Photos: Richard Silver | RichardSilverPhotography.com)
