How’s the Water in New Haven In-Person Event (Bilingual)

Scroll down to RSVP

How’s the water in New Haven? Is it safe for swimming? For fishing? For letting your kids play in?

Save the Sound recently spent eight weeks collecting samples from five prime fishing and shellfishing locations along the Quinnipiac and Mill Rivers. Those samples were analyzed for the presence of fecal indicator bacteria, which can make the water unsafe for human contact. DNA tests were also conducted to try to determine where the bacteria came from.

Join Director of Water Quality Peter Linderoth and Outreach Consultant Xochitl Garcia to learn about the results and talk about the water quality around New Haven.

WHAT – How’s the Water in New Haven Presentation (bilingual)
WHEN – Monday, Nov. 27 at 6:00 p.m.
WHERE – Ives Main Library, 133 Elm Street, New Haven, CT
