The public will get an opportunity on Wednesday to ask the Department of Environmental Conservation questions about its controversial decision not to do anything about a toxic plume that runs under Speonk at 7 p.m.
The long-awaited meeting will be held at the Suffolk County Community College, Eastern Campus, Shinnecock Building.
Numerous residents are expected to be in attendance, including members of the CAC-West and Speonk Remsenburg Civic Association, who teamed up with environmentalists, including ones from the Group from the East End, at a meeting earlier this week to form a unified response that they will present to the DEC.
At that same meeting, Southampton Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst said that if the DEC does not step-up to clean-up the plume, the town will consider a lawsuit.
