This map depicts the NYCEBF Newtown Creek Fund CES-CSI/IEC water quality monitoring locations for the Phase I Wet Weather Monitoring Runs. The Interstate Environmental Commission is helping with coordination, providing technical oversight, and community outreach support to CES-CSI on their recently awarded project, “Newtown Creek Community Education and Involvement Initiative: Stormwater Monitoring and Modeling,” which has received funding by the Hudson River Foundation via the New York City Environmental Benefits Fund (NYCEBF) Newtown Creek Fund.
iecwaterqualityresearcher's Shared Maps:
Newtown Creek has 23 Combined Sewer Overflow outfalls along its shores. Some of them are very large, some of them are relatively inactive, some of them are visible and accessible and others are hidden under bridges, behind private lots or under the water line. Members of the S.W.I.M. Coalition and Newtown Creek Alliance are doing their darnedest to locate them all and photograph the conditions at each outfall, especially during wet weather. We know its gross, but somebody's gotta look. If you would like to contribute to this map in a coordinated fashion, please drop us a line through our profile here or at email@example.com
