Recently on my morning jogs around Arverne By The Sea, I’ve noticed in some areas the bright white PVC fencing is turning yellow. I thought at first it could be from a fertilizer spray or some kind of pesticide. Today I asked a homeowner. The resident explained that part of the sprinkler system now uses well water. The areas affected are those homes closer to Shore Front Parkway. It’s unclear what substance in the well water is causing the reaction. The resident also pointed out that some homes and sidewalks are discolored as well. We’ll update when we learn more.
