We focused our 2014 sampling efforts on the Mamaroneck Harbor Watershed (which includes Mamaroneck River, Sheldrake River, Beaver Swamp Brook, Otter Creek, and Mamaroneck Harbor), the Hutchinson River, and five Westchester beaches that are automatically closed in wet weather due to a history of contamination. Click on each site on the map above to see what we found. The colors reflect average bacteria levels at each site. The “% Pass” and “% Fail” show how many samples passed or failed the single sample criteria for safe swimming in New York and Connecticut.

Be a Part of the Solution

  • ​Everyone can help reduce sewage pollution sources simply by conserving water, which will lessen the wear-and-tear on our water infrastructure and reduce sewage overflows by lowering the volume of water in the system.
  • Homeowners need to repair the sewer lines that connect homes and businesses to municipal sewers, or maintain their septic systems.
  • Dog owners should put pet waste in the trash, never in a catch basin or on the street.
  • If you see sewage overflowing in your community, please let us know by sending a photograph or video and the time and location of the overflow to pollution@savethesound.org.
