Montauk citizens are anxious over the current quality of water surrounding the area and the East End. To that end, the Concerned Citizens of Montauk (CCOM) will be holding a Lobster Bake in support of their water quality projects.

"The Concerned Citizens of Montauk, Montauk's only environmental not-for-profit founded in 1970, will host their Summer Lobster Bake at Gurney's Star Island Resort & Marina†on Saturday, August 10, 2019. All proceeds to benefit CCOM's water quality monitoring and preservation initiatives†as part of their ongoing mission to preserve and protect Montauk and its beautiful waters," explained Laura Tooman, CCOM President.

CCOM, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year, began its mission when a group of concerned citizens fought to block a developer's plans to build 1,400 houses near Big Reed Pond in Montauk. Their success against the developer jumpstarted the productive journey of this East End group. Since 1970, CCOM has grown into one of the leading environmental groups on Long Island.

The organization is known for leading the development of the Theodore Roosevelt County Park, as well as preserving local parks such as Camp Hero, Shadmoor, Hither Woods, Culloden Point, The Sanctuary and Amsterdam Beach.

CCOM performs regular bacteria tests in Montauk, Amagansett and East Hampton waters. Mainly testing for the bacteria enterococcus, CCOM tests around 900 water samples each year. In addition, along with the Gobler Lab at Stony Brook in Southampton, CCOM monitors Fort Pond and Big Reed Pond for toxic blue-green harmful algal blooms, otherwise known as cyanobacteria.

All proceeds generated from the first annual Lobster Bake will support the CCOM and their fight to keep the East End water safe.

Tickets can be purchased prior to the event for $250 per person.

Gurney's Star Island Resort & Marina is located at 32 Star Island Road in Montauk. For tickets and more info, visit www.preservemontauk.org.
