What I want to do-Improve the water quality of Flushing Bay, Queens, New York
My attempt and results- With the Water Trail Association and The River Project as parent organizations we have been taking samples and analyzing the quality of the water in Flushing Bay for the past 2 years. The water contains high levels of bacteria due to the 2 large CSOs which dump raw sewage into the Bay during rainfalls.
Questions and next steps-We are having a shoreline Friends and Family Day on May 10th from 11am-3pm. Please join us!
Why I'm interested- The Empire Dragon Boat Team, of which I am a member, practices on Flushing Bay 5 hours per week.
Hi Liz, No I haven't yet, but am planning to make the mapping the main topic of discussion during our lunch on May 8th. I'm thinking that we need to understand the scope of the mapping project first before putting up a balloon, but then I am not entirely sure that I understand what putting up a balloon will do. See you Thursday.
