The Manhasset Bay Protection Committee is an inter-municipal organization focused on addressing water quality and coastal issues with a coordinated, watershed-level approach. The Committee has 15 member municipalities who all voluntarily entered into an inter-municipal agreement. The Committee is funded through annual dues from these members. Membership is open to all local governments in the watershed.
The Committee’s goals are to protect, restore, and enhance Manhasset Bay so as to insure a healthy and diverse marine ecosystem while balancing and maintaining recreational and commercial uses.
The Village of Port Washington North is an active member of the Manhasset Bay Protection Committee.
