Stop with the facts and logic.

According to Murray Garber's Geohydrology of the Lloyd Aquifer, 1986, 'the upper surface of the Lloyd Aquifer ranges in depth from 100' below land surface on the north shore...'

in this part of L.I. it's about 500 to 600 ft. deep. A Bridge across the sound won't hurt the groundwater. Move on to other worries.

Nice, very succinct. Groundwater or not, the answer is "no"--if groundwater didn't know, it knows now

Thirty years makes a lot more sense than doing it now.

Default same reasons that the SOB stopped 30 plus years

ago.

North Shore doesn't want the unwashed masses coming through their neighborhood.

Interestingly, 3rd track in middle of island goes through.

Build up Nassau Coliseum area, more strip malls on mid to south shore but let us not disturb the folks the 1%.

NIMBYS to the detriment of the rest of Long Island.
