Residents have a chance tonight to weigh in on part one of the natural resources chapter of Southold Town’s new comprehensive plan, which focuses on water resources.

The town will hold two public meetings — tonight and Saturday — at which residents can air their views on the chapter. Today’s meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Peconic Community Center on Peconic Lane and the Feb. 2 session starts at 10 a.m. at Poquatuck Hall in Orient.

The chapter deals with issues ranging from the quality and quantity of groundwater available for the use of Southold residents and on the quality of surfaces waters throughout town.

The draft of the full chapter is available below.
