  • Long Pond: Madaket Harbor and Long Pond make up a unique ecosystem encompassing approximately 9 square miles.  Long Pond is somewhat isolated from the whole system, and may be evaluated as having separate water quality issues. It is relatively narrow and winding with depths of 4 to 6 feet with no deep basins.
