Hallett's Cove

Queens, New York
Mis à jour par Friends of + POOL

Plus Pool is an initiative to build the world’s first water-filtering floating pool to be located in New York’s rivers. Designed by individuals from Family New York (Dong-Ping Wong) and PlayLab (Jeffrey Franklin and Archie Coates), Plus Pool was conceived when the trio realized that they could do virtually anything imaginable in New York City - everything except swim in the rivers on a hot summer day.

Hallet’s Cove is located along the East River at the border of Astoria and Ravenswood. This site is within one block away from the Socrates Sculpture Garden and next to Goodwill Park with impressive views of Roosevelt Island and the Upper East Side. The location for this site (30-01 Vernon Blvd) is not very easy to access although it is about 40 minutes away from Times Square. Connections are available by the N and Q trains as well as the Q103 bus. Astoria Park Pool is approximately 15 minutes away. In general observations, the surrounding area is not very well kept, with walkways and public areas V OB8YOP8Noften covered in garbage, broken glass, and discarded items (shopping carts, childrens bikes, household items).

Hallet's Cove (avg. depth 13ft) is in a fairly well sheltered location and well out of reach of the navigable channel (~ 1600 ft). The average current at this location is 2.8 knots and the location is supportive of in regards to space requirements for the +Pool (510,000 square feet in available area). However, as a result of unique site dynamics, the Hallets Cove site presented with some of the least positive values in terms of water quality when compared to the other sites being examined in this study. This may be due to tidal and current interaction within the cove with tends to aggregate flotsam and other refuse as well as stirring up the bottom substrate - resulting in significant levels of turbidity and total suspended solids which would present significant problems in terms of water filtration. Additionally, there is a tier 3 CSO feeding directly into the cove, which may lead to high levels of bacteria after significant precipitation events. Earlier in 2014, the city found an illegal sewer line where a building under the New York City Housing Authority at the Astoria Houses was releasing untreated sewage into the cove.

Plus POOL collects water samples for 4 beaches around the Hudson River. Water samples are collected and processed by interns hired by Friends of Plus Pool. Plus POOL measures eight parameters, including Turbidity, Color Apparent, Color True, Total Suspended Solids, Enterococci, Specific Conductivity, pH, and Temperature.

Plus POOL monitors public beaches every weekday from July 6th (weather permitting) to October 2nd. Samples are collected every weekday (from Monday to Friday) at least once per day.

Monitoring Status

Enterococci
A beach is marked Green when two consecutive single sample results are under 35 CFU/100 mL.

A beach is marked Red when two consecutive single sample results are equal to or above 35 CFU/100 mL.

A beach is marked Grey if there is no current results or no available information.

During the summer of 2014, sites were sampled more than once per day. For these dates, data was entered as the mean of the results.

If the mean of the daily samples was less than 35 cfu/100 mL, that beach was marked as GREEN (open).

If the mean of the daily samples was greater than 35 cfu/100 mL, that beach was marked as RED (posted).

If no samples were collected that day, that beach was marked as GREY (no data)."
