+ NJDEP and USEPA both collected (at different times) and analyzed samples on 11/13/12. These results illustrate that there is a great deal of variability in the bacteria in the NY/NJ Harbor at this time. There are many possible sources, including but not limited to sewage treatment plants and stormwater runoff from the land, which has been impacted by the Hurricane Sandy. These results support the NJDEP’s advisory to stay out of the water.
