The second Riverhead Town water forum will be held at Riverhead Town Hall Wednesday at 6 p.m.. 

The forum aims to facilitate an informal discussion between town officials and residents on issues pertaining to the Riverhead Water District and Riverhead’s public water supply.

The forum’s agenda will be posted on the town’s website on or about Feb. 14. Suggestions and recommendations for the water forum’s topics of discussion can be sent to the town board coordinator at until the end of today with the subject line “water forum.” 

The first water forum was held on Sept. 22, where town officials updated residents on various water district projects and discussed the town’s efforts to obtain state and federal funding for extensions that would benefit residents whose private water wells are contaminated. 

Water District Superintendent Frank Mancini requests that any residents with a polluted private water well bring a copy of documents related to tests administered by state agencies to the forum to help the town pursue grant funding. 

Editor’s note: This article was amended to include comments from Water District Superintendent Frank Mancini received after publication and to add the time of the meeting, which had been inadvertently omitted from the original story.
