Dear Friends - How could they say there is no need to check water quality in NYC. Cutting funds to science in service to the public is foolish and harmful.
Please let people know about this!

"A network of hundreds of instruments that for decades tracked the quality, level and flow of water in the city and part of Nassau County has stopped collecting that data following a city decision to cease funding it."

"The network includes 197 measuring stations in wells, 10 stations in rivers and lakes, one meteorological station and 131 water-quality stations across the five boroughs and western Nassau County."
