Coalition to Save Hempstead Harbor Navigation Structure #11

Air Temp: 94 degrees
Water Temp: 79 degrees

Program Description

The Coalition to Save Hempstead Harbor's Water Monitoring Program was developed to get the public actively involved in monitoring harbor conditions and reporting suspected sewage discharges and other violations. Its purpose is to educate the public about issues affecting the harbor and Long Island Sound. They have established collaborative relationships with state and local public officials and environmental agencies. The coalition also participates in the International Coastal Cleanup, is working to map Long Island Sound Monitoring stations, and has published an environmental guidebook to Hempstead Harbor. They monitor three stations weekly from May through November.
