Water Quality Monitoring
The Saw Mill River runs through very densely populated regions, and for this reason it is one of the most heavily polluted tributaries to the Hudson. In order to improve the health of the river, the Saw Mill River Coalition has coordinated and conducted water quality studies since 2001. We work in conjunction with our partners, among them Manhattan College and Saunders High School, to gain comprehensive scientific data to aid in this effort to protect the Saw Mill.
In conducting these studies we are able to identify pollution hot spots and develop remediation programs with the Saw Mill River communities. Water Quality studies have also included intensive fish studies in which high school and college students and professors monitored the fish species in the river.
