Grace Limoncelli: Grade 7
Because of the effects of Hurricane Sandy, many Long Islanders are now especially wondering what they can do to be ecologically friendly. Below are some ideas.
- Conserve water by turning off the water while brushing your teeth; take short showers; keep the water pressure on “low” when possible, etc. This is necessary, because one of the important Nassau County sewage treatment plants is not in working order.
- Conserve electricity (if you have it) so there are no surges in your neighborhood. This will make it easier for LIPA to distribute power evenly.
