HERE’S AN UPDATE, JAN. 2013: We are, regrettably, not out of the woods on the water quality issues on the south shore of long island (obviously, this land mass includes Rockaway). Click through for a link to a our Foundation’s blog about this sewage treatment. It’s not good news, sad to say.
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL POST FROM DECEMBER: It looks like there’s still cause for concern about bacteria levels in the immediate area. See this post from HQ blog, and a corresponding article from NY Times. Hate to say it, but it still doesn’t seem recommendable to surf locally. We are working as hard as we can to get water testing results in place so we can all DEFINITELY know the deal, health-wise. We will shout loudly with any updates on that score.
