Commonlands and Surface Water Protection

The East Hampton Town Trustees govern the Commonlands between the Western border of the Town and the Eastern edge of Napeague. A further definition of East Hampton Town Trustee properties is in the Dongan Patent.
  
Surface Water Protection
 
The discharge of treated or untreated sewage from marine toilets into Trustee waters is prohibited. In addition, the entire Peconic Estuary was designated as a No Discharge Zone (NDZ) in 2002. Further, under federal law, Discharging of raw sewage directly into waters within the three mile limit (from land) is illegal.
 
In order to protect East Hampton waters for environmental and recreational purposes and to safeguard our shellfish beds, the East Hampton Trustees own and operate Pump-Out boats which are available to all boaters free of charge. In addition, land based facilities are provided by the Town of East Hampton as well as local businesses.
