A special science topic intrigued students at Lynwood Avenue Elementary School as they attended an educational program on the Long Island aquifer system presented by the Suffolk County Water Authority. 

Each third-grade class at Lynwood listened to important facts about the aquifer system on Long Island – including the different components of the system – and how homes are supplied with clean water. A demonstration using red dye showed students how easy harmful chemicals can leach through the ground into the water supply and create unsafe drinking water.

Throughout the presentation students asked questions and discussed ways to limit pollution in their everyday lives.
