wading river civic association
As a group, we strive to achieve maintaining the rural character of the community, preserving open space, creating safer roads and pedestrian byways. We also continue to watch over what’s happening at Brookhaven National Lab and the Shoreham/ Wading River LIPA facility. We continue to be a strong voice in various levels of government.
