The Southold Town shellfish advisory committee plans to use drone videography next week to conduct dye-flow studies over Oysterponds Creek, Orient Harbor and Narrow River in Orient.

The test will take place Monday, May 7, according to John Bredemeyer, the town Trustees’ liaison to the committee, with a rain date of May 8. 

Non-toxic dye will be cast into the water bodies and tracked by a drone at different tides, showing the movement of the water, and highlighting where any contaminants originate, how they spread and how quickly they travel, Mr. Bredemeyer explained. If bacterial sources are detected, potential corrective measures may be sought, he said.  READ
