Mapping Long Island’s Groundwater Quality
Director of Strategic Initiatives/Lead Hydrogeologist at Suffolk County Water Authority
In 2014, a partnership was formed between Nassau and Suffolk counties known as the Long Island Commission for Aquifer Protection (L.I.C.A.P.). As stated in the L.I.C.A.P. mission, this bi-county entity was formed to address both quality and quantity issues facing the Long Island aquifer system, and to advocate for a coordinated regional approach to groundwater resources management. In working with this coordinated approach water suppliers across Long Island shared water quality data for calendar year 2015, along with locations of their public supply wells (below figure) and well attributes (well depth, aquifer type, district, etc). The data obtained was exported in Microsoft Excel and transferred into ArcGIS. The creation of this system allows for water utilities and public agencies to search for any sampled analyte and have results visually displayed by concentration range and location.
