Heading to the beach this summer? Or would you simply like more information about the water quality of Long Island Sound?
You can find answers to these questions and more by visiting the Sound Health Explorer. A new site created by Save the Sound, the Sound Health Explorer lets you review the health of any beach on Long Island Sound. The default view shows five years of beach testing data and you can change that time-frame to any scale you like.
There is other water quality-related information to explore including land use, location of sewage treatment plants, subwatershed boundaries, and more!
It's valuable resource for those of us living along and enjoying the waters of Long Island Sound.
