The Greenport Village Board will meet tonight to host its annual public hearing  to discuss federal and state mandates, commonly known as MS4, which are aimed at improving water quality.

Under orders from both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state Department of Conservation, municipalities are required to record and report steps taken to meet federal clean water standards on a local level.

The hearing, which is required annually, is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Third Street fire station.
