Sep 7th, 2013 | By | Category: Water

Save the Sound, along with a team of committed volunteers, initiated a pilot water quality monitoring program in Mamaroneck this summer. Our goal? To uncover why beaches are closed so often. What we found was shocking, but not unexpected.

Representatives of Save the Sound and Mamaroneck village inspected Otter Creek, location of a sewer line break.

Our first discovery was a slurry of goop from a local A&P supermarket running into a storm drain on the Mamaroneck River. The second big find was a significant sewer line break near Mamaroneck Harbor, in a line belonging to the Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club.
