The Batman of the Hudson

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 Gowns Canal and the Newton 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.
