The Long Island Commission for Aquifer Protection gave the Water Conservation Committee of the Town of Southold Smart Irrigation Controllers, valued at $230, to be distributed free of charge to home owners. Installation is the responsibility of the recipient. The first ones will be given to homes using public water, but people using onsite wells and other user types are also encouraged to apply so that the Committee can judge interest for an expansion of the program.
