Based on overnight rainfall rates and totals, as well as the early-morning NWS Flood Advisory for more, the potential wider impact on local water quality beyond the current CSO advisory for Newtown Creek warranted a decision earlier this morning to cancel our northbound trip to bring boats and equipment to the beach.
So, despite the fact that it may not be raining for the 1-4pm window for Hallet’s Cove, we will not be able to run our walkup program there, today.
Health and safety of our guests and volunteers is top priority. With increased awareness of the risks posed by poor water quality, we aim to be extra conscientious about activities undertaken by LICCB. We regret any inconvenience.
