Pier 40

New York, New York

In the summer of 2014, the team behind Plus Pool built a test laboratory alongside the Hudson River at Pier 40 to collect data on water quality and to test the capabilities of our filtration concepts which were designed to reduce the particulate matter and bacterial concentrations of contaminated river water. We looked at 19+ water quality indicators and shared this information with the public through an app that was developed by a team at Google

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is essential right now. Follow the advice of the health experts. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Heading to the beach should only be considered an option if social distancing practices can be followed. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter the efforts to curb the virus’ spread.

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).
