Great Neck Water Pollution Control District Commissioner Patty Katz makes an educational presentation at the Great Neck Synagogue.

Great Neck Water Pollution Control District Commissioner Patty Katz recently visited members of the Great Neck Synagogue to discuss the numerous projects and initiatives happening at the wastewater treatment center.

The presentation was part of the District’s ongoing mission to provide the community with a deeper understanding of District operations through presentations and tours to local students, elected officials, environmental advocates and broader community groups.

Katz provided attendees a look into the District’s extensive cost-saving measures, services and its current infrastructure projects—including updates to the three anaerobic digesters, construction of a grease receiving station and addition of a third microturbine. The District is constantly working to find innovative ways to keep taxes low while protecting the environment.
