Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays

Peconic Estuary Surface Water Quality Monitoring Report, 2010-2012 (2016)

This report describes trends in water quality at 64 marine, stream and point source locations in the Peconic Estuary that were monitored from 2010 through 2012 by staff from the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, Office of Ecology (Bureau of Marine Resources). Basic descriptive statistics and graphics depicting spatial and temporal variations provided the basis for the analysis. Sampling results for the prior two decades (1990-1999 and 2000-2009) were also examined to provide some context for the 2010-2012 data.
