The cleanest 2015 site was at Taylor Lane in the outer Mamaroneck Harbor
2015 test results from Save the Sound, a nonprofit research and advocacy group, have just been released online, covering 52 locations from Pelham Manor, New York to Greenwich, Connecticut, including shorelines and bays, rivers, brooks, and creeks.
Save the Sound found that sites on the rivers, brooks, and creeks that flow through our yards and parks into the Sound “as a group failed twice as often as sites on the shoreline and in bays and harbors. The report reveals: “The 79 percent failure rate on rivers is also twice last year’s failure rate of 34 percent. The dramatic increase in failed samples cannot be attributed entirely to the rivers we added to the study this year, because the rivers we sampled last year and again this year all had higher failure rates in 2015.”
