On the heels of water quality warnings from the New York State Kevin McAllister, executive director of the nonprofit Peconic Baykeeper, is o nce again urging lawmakers to change laws in order to  help clean up the water in the Peconic and South Shore estuaries by reducing the use of cesspools. McAllister said in an article posted Wednesday on North Fork Patch that a biotoxin is negatively affecting filter feeding shellfish and is a direct result of waste water that funnels through residential and commercial cesspools.
