The Laurel Lake Preserve wind turbine plan and a waste water pipeline proposal connecting the Shelter Island Heights Property Owners Corporation to Greenport Village’s sewage treatment plant are two big items to be discussed at tonight’s North Fork Environmental Council meeting.

Other topics on the Mattituck group’s agenda tonight include a moratorium on Suffolk County’s water quality fund program for open space acquisitions — which is being considered in the county Legislature — as well as a development project planned for near Hashamomuck Pond.

The meeting is set for 6 p.m. at the Floyd Memorial Library on First Street in Greenport Village.

NFEC officials said Greenport Village Mayor David Nyce is expected to attend.

During a public Greenport Village Board work session in December, Mr. Nyce said the private corporation that manages the infrastructure of the private Heights community on Shelter Island had asked him to schedule a roundtable discussion with the village trustees to begin preliminary feasibility talks. The connection fee to handle an estimated 60,000 gallons of sewage per day from the Heights could cost the property owners corporation about $2.75 million, Mr. Nyce had said.
