A Marine Nature Study Area is ideally a portion of the natural tidal wetlands preserved and managed to enrich community life and add to the well being of the public.


The Town of Hempstead, through its Department of Conservation and Waterways, developed a Marine Nature Study Area, which was a first for Long Island and possibly for this section of the mid-Atlantic seaboard. Plans for the area began in 1964 when the Director of the Department of Conservation and Waterways presented a program for the preservation and management of the entire town wetlands. This nature area named the "Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area" is a salt marsh cut by tidal streams, which if not placed under the preservation program would have become a development site.

Marine Nature Study Areas differ from the most other community undertakings in that the design provides for education, research preservation and management practices. Alterations of the marsh for the purpose of creating the study area were minimal. Long Island News From the Long Island Press. Sustainable Long Island - Advancing sustainability across Long Island. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Partnership. CHP offers a number of benefits compared to conventional electricity and thermal energy production, including: Efficiency Benefits CHP requires less fuel to produce a given energy output and avoids transmission and distribution losses that occur when electricity travels over power lines.

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Partnership

Environmental Benefits Because less fuel is burned to produce each unit of energy output and because transmission and distribution losses are avoided, CHP reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants. Economic Benefits CHP can save facilities considerable money on their energy bills due to its high efficiency, and it can provide a hedge against electricity cost increases. Reliability Benefits Unreliable electricity service represents a quantifiable business, safety, and health risk for some companies and organizations.
