love about the Sparkill!


Monitoring includes data collecting for:


-Enterococcus - (evidence of sewage in the water). This sampling program is in Partnership with the Hudson Riverkeeper Organization.


-Aquatic Macroinverterbrate

(Each different community of critters who live in the stream under the rocks tells us about the health of the water)


-Chemistry of water (what has entered the creek that does not belong there)


-Physical state of the creek (the assessment of creek bed, stream banks and surroundings)
