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

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.
