The Bay Avenue rain garden in the Town of Southold Mattituck Park District will have its official presentation with a ribbon cutting on June 23 at 10 a.m.

Area officials including Highway Superintendent Vincent Orlando, Jeff Standish the Head of Public Works, Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell, John Bredemeyer Head of the Southold Town Trustees and Suffolk County Legislator Al Krupski have been invited.  

The rain garden, planted with native plants, was installed last autumn. It helps filter out pollutants coming from municipal property to the James Creek in Mattituck. It was installed through a working partnership between the Suffolk County Soil and Water Conservation District, Town of Southold, and Mattituck Park District.

The project was funded with NYS Environmental Protection Funds. 

To reach the park head east on Route 58 through Riverhead until Route 58 turns into Main Road (Route 25) in Aquebogue.  Continue east to Mattituck.  Turn right on Bay Avenue.  The Park is located about 1 mile down on the left. For information call Sharon Frost, 631-852-3287 or the day of the event call 631-806-4366.

Looks like a great location for a Suffolk County sponsored toxic dump site.
