In her first term as Supervisor, Jens-Smith established the first environmental committee in the history of Riverhead. At the same time, the Supervisor has expanded the solar generation capabilities of Riverhead with the town now creating 50% of all the solar energy produced on Long Island. Under her watch, the town also completed a town facility and street light energy audit and is currently implementing the recommendations including replacing the town’s lighting with LED bulbs to reduce energy consumption. To address the protection of the waterways in her district, Jens-Smith recently announced a plan to invest $10 million dollars in the Calverton Sewer Treatment plant to lessen pollution runoff from the plant. Moving forward, the Supervisor will continue to work to ensure that Riverhead remains a leader in environmental action on Long Island by continuing the program she has already spearheaded and pushed her town council to continue to approve her initiatives. Moving forward, Jens-Smith pledges to continue ongoing environmental efforts by working to make the Town of Riverhead a certified Climate Smart Community.
