About this location:
This site is located in the New York Botanical Garden towards the end of the Waterfall Trail that runs along the Bronx River, just upstream of a small waterfall. Botanical Garden visitors may kayak upstream of the site. Although there are no combined sewer overflow outfalls upstream of the sampling site in New York City, numerous Westchester County sewage outfalls discharge into the Bronx River. This site is no longer actively sampled.
