In response to the overwhelming number of concerns expressed by the Quogue community regarding a proposed dredging project for the Village, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation will conduct a public hearing on August 10 at 6pm, in the Quogue Village Hall court room.
A state-appointed judge will preside over the meeting, which presents an opportunity for citizens to voice their concerns in person. Public input will be critical in determining whether the application for the proposed $15 million project will be approved.

‘Navigating Troubled Waters: Science and Coastal Management’
@ Quogue Village Hall
Sunday, August 10th at 3pm
Co-hosted by CCQ and the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines , and moderated by PSDS director Dr. Rob Young, the presentation will be delivered by esteemed journalist, author and thought leader, Cornelia Dean.
Her first book, Against the Tide: The Battle for America’s Beaches, was published in 1999 by Columbia University Press and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
She has since published Am I Making Myself Clear?: A Scientist’s Guide to Talking to the Public, and most recently, has focused on the misuse of scientific information in American public life.
As writer-in-residence at Brown University, current science writer and former science editor at The New York Times, we are excited to hear Cornelia’s voice as we consider our own coastal management options in Quogue.
