PASTOR CHEVROLET DONATES TRUCK - Bernie Pastor, right, owner of Pastor Chevrolet, turns over the keys to a new 1975 Chevrolet truck to James S.

Hampton Bays Water Under Study Both the quality and supply of ground water in the Hampton Bays area are in imminent danger of deterioration. These are the findings of a study of the environmental consequences of ground-water devel­ opment of the Hampton Bays Water District prepared for the Town of Southampton by Zane Spiegel, a nationally renowned ground water hydrologist. The results and text of Spiegel’s 110 page study were released this week by Southampton Town Super­ visor Theodore O. Hulse, who com­ mented that this was the first com­ prehensive study of the local ground water situation in Hampton Bays that has ever been made. Previous water studies, which indicated the ad­ visability of limiting future popula­ tion growth to perserve the town’s water supply, covered the entire town. The need for the Spiegel study became evident two years ago, Hulse said, when the Hampton Bays Water District experienced prolonged diffi­ culty with a new well it was digging. The district had been forced several years earlier to abandon one well which had become the victim of salt-water intrusion, he noted, and a second well is now subject to salt- wat6r intrusion if the water level drops below three feet above sea level for substantial periods of time. Since 1972, according to Hulse, there has been insufficient water volume and pressure during summer months in some areas of the district. In addition, residents with private wells in one area have been com­ plaining about the quality of their water. The Spiegel study was author­ ized, Hulse said, in order to obtain a complete analysis of the needs of the district and to develop an overall plan for meeting these needs in gradual stages. The basic problems in the Hamp­ ton Bays Water District are due primarily to two facts, according to Spiegel. One is that the district has the highest density of population and also the highest rate of population increase in the Town of Southamp­ ton. The other is that the district is located in the narrowest portion of the town and is divided by the Shinne- cock Canal. Among the most important recom­ mendations made by Spiegel are the installation of new wells of sufficient capacity to provide the base supply for the entire district; wide dispersal of new wells in the broader western area of the district so as to decrease the potential for salt-water invasion of both them and the existing wells; and reservation of present wells for use only during peak demand periods in order to avoid or defer salt-water invasion. A number of supplement­ ary or alternative possible actions are also outlined by Spiegel. “ If appropriate actions are not taken soon,” Spiegel concludes, “the water quality in existing wells, both public and private, can be expected to deteriorate rapidly, by intrusion of salt water from below and contamina­ tion by nitrate from above. Even if drinking water nitrate standards are not exceeded, ponds and bays will become increasingly over-nutrified, to the detriment of commercial and sport fisheries and the recreation industry.” The Spiegel study and a long-range program for the water district, which was drawn up by John P. Mahoney, a sanitary engineer, will be the subject of a public information meeting to be held by the Southampton Town Board at the Hampton Bays High School on Decembers under the sponsorship of the Hampton Bays Civic Association. Viliage Loses Gronper Fines Collection A New York State Supreme Court decision on a challenge to the group rental ordinance in Southampton Village has left the village in a quandry. The decision upheld the village’s right to restrict rentals to groups consisting of no more than five unrelated persons, with no more than two persons occupying a conventional bedroom, but it denied the village the right to collect $15,000 in fines for violations of the grouper restrictions, which the village claimed had been committed by Elaine Platt of New York City. Miss Platt had rented a large summer estate on South Main Street in 1974, and the village charged, shared the rental with from 17 to 34 unrelated persons all summer long. Since the village zoning ordinance provides for a $250 fine for violation of its group rental provisions, with each day of violation subject to an additional $250 fine, the village went to court to try to collect $15,000 in fines for 60 days of violations. In defense. Miss Platt claimed that the grouper restrictions were unconstitu­ tional, and in any event the village had no right to collect any fines. Justice David Gibbons in Nassau County ruled against Miss Platt on the first claim, citing the U.S Su­ preme Court’s decision upholding the Village of Belle Terre’s group rental ordinance. But he ruled for Miss Platt in the matter of the fines, saying the village should rely on its police powers, rather than enormous fines to enforce its zoning ordinance. Belle Terre, it appeared, had moved to evict a group of unrelated tenants, rather than to fine them. An eviction was okay, but New York State law prevents a village from prosecuting zoning violations on a daily or even a weekly basis, so the maximum fine collectible in a village, per house, for an entire summer, is $250. But Southampton Village could not collect even the $250 because the village building inspector did not have sufficient proof of the grouper violation, when he sent a courtesy notice of the violation, as required by the village zoning ordinance, but not by state law. The outcome of the whole affair may be threefold. First, according to village attorney Emil DePetris, the village trustees will undoubtedly delete the requirement for a courtesy notice from its zoning ordinance; second, the trustees will join with other village officials throughout the state in urging the state legislature to amend state laws to allow villages to recover fines on a daily or at least weekly basis, for continuing viola­ tions; and third, the village may appeal that part of Justice Gibbons’ decision which states that violation of a group- rental ordinance is one continuous inseparable offense.
