Water Quality Testing

The Accabonac Protection Committee is working to monitor water quality in and near Accabonac Harbor. Water samples are collected each week in the summer by APC members who sample from Accabonac Harbor at Louse Point Beach  and Shipyard Lane. She also samples from Pussy's Pond and Three Mile Harbor Folkstone. The samples are analyzed by Concerned Citizens of Montauk for enterococcus and the results are published weekly.
