Storm Water Basin Medallion Program:
The Islip Environmental Council (ITEC) funded a project, which will place 1,000 medallions on storm drains throughout the Town of Islip. Last year, members of the Islip Town Board placed the first medallion on a drain that empties into the Great South Bay. The medallions (pictured) are designed to educate the public about dumping toxic materials down storm drains.
