Officials release Long Island Sound health report
Article Link Permanent Link

Just how clean is the water in Long Island Sound? a new study is assigning grades to water quality, highlighting the cleanest and dirtiest sections in our area. The University of Maryland's Center for Environmental Science released its first- ever Long Island Sound Report Card yesterday. It gives waters below Norwalk a d plus, Norwalk Harbor a c plus, and beaches north of Norwalk a b minus. Overall, it shows that state and federal efforts to clean the Sound are working, but more effort is still needed. State environmental officials say they appreciate the report because it's easy for anyone to understand. "We can tell them 'dissolved oxygen means this,' 'water clarity means this,' but to take that, and then put into some threshold of where we think 'clean Is clean' and 'good is good,' this sort of does that." State regulators say that despite the progress, challenges still remain -- including polluted run-off from cities and farms. We're told the state is going to announce a 20 year plan for Long Island Sound later this summer. You can see the report, including the grades, by going to our website, News 12 dot com.
