The Riverkeeper Patrol Boat monitors the water quality of the entire Hudson river basin, from its source to the New York Harbor. This summer, Captain Lipscomb will be navigating the Gowanus Canal and the Newtown Creek, Superfund sites still used as storm drains for the sewers and dumps for surrounding construction sites. Measuring the toxicity of these waterways is a grim but urgent task.
