 GRANTS IN EXCESS OF $200,000 AWARDED FOR PILOT COMPOST TESTING
 TO HELP BOOST MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR SOD INDUSTRY
 At a time when Long Island is struggling to solve its costly solid waste crisis, grants totaling $205,000 that will help boost the multimillion-dollar sod industry by strengthening municipal composting in the region, reducing the need for incineration and the trucking of waste out of state will be announced on Thursday, April 9, 2:00 p.m. at Middle Country Road, across from the intersection of Fresh Pond Avenue, Calverton.
 The grants will study the use of composting for growing sod in cooperation with Stony Brook University, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), DeLalio Sod Farms, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Suffolk County Department of Health, and Omni Technical Services, which has been given permission to build at the site of the news conference a composting facility that will serve the island's East End towns.
 Expected to attend the news conference are regional DEC Administrator Raymond Cowen, Stony Brook University and agriculture officials, and executives of Omni Technical.
 To reach the news conference location, take Long Island Expressway Exit 71 North. Proceed on Edwards Avenue one mile to Middle Country Road, turn left and proceed 1.25 miles to Fresh Pond Avenue. Site is on the south side.
 CONTACT: Gary Lewi of Howard J. Rubenstein Associates, 212-489-6900, for Omni Technical Services.
