Long Island Sound Report Card
The Long Island Sound Report Card was developed through a collaborative effort between the staff at the Long Island Sound Study and their Science and Technical Advisory Committee, Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and New York Department of Environmental Conservation. The Sound was divided into 5 reporting regions; western and eastern narrows, western, central, and eastern Long Island Sound. Each reporting region was determined from a combination of geographic features as well as the sampling density. The report card grades for the Sound range from failing, a F in the Western Narrows, to excellent, an A in the Eastern Long Island Sound.
