Southampton buys 86 acres in East Quogue using CPF monies

Protecting drinking water

Using CPF funds, Southampton Town has purchased 86 acres of undeveloped land in East Quogue, which is the East End’s largest land buy in more than a decade. The property is located within Southampton’s Aquifer Protection Overlay District as well as the Suffolk Special Groundwater Protection Area. (The central undeveloped area in the map above.)

Compass agents Scott A. Strough and Christian Lipp facilitated the deal. “An opportunity to preserve one of the largest tracts of land in the Town of Southampton is really satisfying. Groundwater protection is priceless and hopefully we can make a difference with this sale,” said Mr. Strough. Mr. Lipp added, “Both groundwater protection and the conservation of natural resources and habitat were the drivers of this deal. The sellers are happy that they can be part of something that will have a positive impact on future generations.”
