How’s the Water

"How's the water?"  The answer is, "Pretty darn good!"  with some major exception. This coming summer a crew of volunteers from the Friends of the Mohawk Towpath Byway will be helping to take a snapshot every month of the water quality in the Mohawk between Schenectady and Cohoes and Waterford.  If you would like to help with this effort to see "how's the water" please contact us at admin(at)mohawktowpath(dot)org.
