water quality

hudson_300Have you ever wondered whether it is wise to dip your toe into the Hudson River? Some people dive right in, but if you are like me, you want a little more data before taking a leap.  

This is where the Riverkeeper website comes in handy. Their Water Quality Map has data drawn from Albany and Rensselear counties down the Hudson to Rockland and Westchester.

Once you click on a specific county that lies along the Hidson River, the locations of where they took samples appear. You can get very specific data for that area. They also explain the data they offer for those of us who may not use such terminology frequently. Knowledge is power. Also check out their Swimmable River campaign.   

Who else is testing the Hudson River?
