Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt, celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2022, is an all-volunteer organization that works to advance the preservation, stewardship, appreciation, and enjoyment of the Long Pond Greenbelt: that unique expanse of coastal plain ponds, freshwater swamps, wetlands and woodlands encompassing more than 800 protected acres. The Long Pond Greenbelt stretches six miles between the villages of Sag Harbor and Sagaponack in the Town of Southampton on the East End of Long Island, New York.

Protect the Long Pond Greenbelt

To: PSEG Long Island and Long Island Power Authority.

We the undersigned oppose the PSEG Bridgehampton to Buell proposal to drill a 69 kV Underground Transmission cable through the heart of the Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Preserve. HDD threatens the fragile groundwater systems of this unique coastal plain pond community, one of the most ecologically significant areas in all of New York State with more than 30 rare species of plants and animals.
