Al Krupski

Al Krupski is a man of the land of Long Island — a fourth-generation farmer. He’s a champion of open space and farmland preservation. And he well understands the importance of the water table below the land’s surface — the sole source aquifer on which Long Islanders (and Shelter Islanders, too) depend as their only potable water supply.
