EST Water Test Site Maps

Normanskill Creek

In 2008 the EST team performed testing at four sites on the Normanskill Creek in the town of Duanesburg, including at a location where discharge from the local sanitary landfill can be seen leaching into the creek. The data and photos from that testing are available here. Click each of  the markers to view test results.  To reset the map, click your browser’s refresh button
