The future of Long Island’s water supply will be on the agenda of a public meeting held by legislators from both counties on Wednesday.

Nassau County Legis. Judi Bosworth (D-Great Neck) and Suffolk County Legis. William Spencer (D-Centerport) are scheduled to host a public hearing on aquifers on Long Island, and how they can be protected from overuse and intrusion from pollution and saltwater, among other topics.

The meeting is slated to take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Rose Y. Caracappa Auditorium at the William H. Rogers Legislature Building, 725 Veterans Memorial Hwy., in Hauppauge.
