About

Be empowered to get into your local water and see for yourself if water is safe for swimming or fish.
Interested volunteers should contact pollution@savethesound.org for more information. Communities include Manhasset Bay and Little Neck Bay. Volunteers will be needed 1 morning per week to collect water samples through Labor Day, in order to build up a complete picture of water quality in the communities surrounding the western Sound. Multiple trainings will be held in June. After completing training, volunteers will travel to pre-selected sites in their communities, once a week before 10am, with Save the Sound’s water monitoring coordinator. The collection time will likely only take 90 minutes on 1 morning every week. We have found that fecal contamination is highest in the streams, creeks, and rivers that run through communities and flow to the shoreline.
