About this site

Welcome to Project R.I.S.E., Peconic Baykeeper’s  community science initiative to document long-term climate impacts and coastal change in the Peconic Estuary Watershed. Please help support this project by submitting your photos each time you visit this site!

Lake Montauk is a 900-acre artificial embayment that is home to the largest commercial and sport fishing fleet in the State of New York. In 1927, real estate developer Carl Fisher opened a gap on the northern shoreline to connect the Lake to Block island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.  After the inlet was opened, Lake Montauk replaced Fort Pond Bay as Montauk’s primary port. Mountauk Inlet and its adjacent beaches are in a constant state of transition as storms, waves, and currents deposit and remove sand. 

This Chronolog Station is located at the Town-owned parking l ot adjacent to Gosman’s Fish Market tat the Montauk Inlet.
