Communities along the Sound where water quality monitoring will be occurring this summer include Port Chester, Rye, Mamaroneck, Larchmont, New Rochelle, Pelham, Mt. Vernon, Harrison, Scarsdale and Greenwich. After completing training, volunteers will travel throughout their communities, once a week on average, with Save the Sound's water monitoring coordinator and collect data in order to build up a complete picture of water quality in the communities surrounding the western Sound. Interested volunteers should contact pollution@savethesound.org for more information. This project is possible due to a grant from the EPA to increase water quality monitoring.
