Port Jefferson Harbor Management Complex

The Village of Old Field participates with the Villages of Belle Terre, Port Jefferson and Poquott, as well as the Town of Brookhaven, in the Harbor Management Plan for the Port Jefferson Harbor Complex.  The plan was created in 1988 under State law to protect the water quality and coastal environment of Port Jefferson Harbor and Conscience Bay, and to regulate the use of these areas.  The five municipalities work cooperatively to address issues related to the use of protection of surface waters, natural resources, underwater lands, shoreline, and commercial waterfront.
