Figure 23.7. Fecal coliform bacteria trends (as summer geometric means) in the Hudson River in the Albany Pool near Glenmont, NY and off of 42nd St., Manhattan, NY. Albany Pool data represent 6-8 samples per summer, except for 1975, 1976, and 1987-92 which represent 4 or less samples per summer. Data collected off of Manhattan represent 8-14 samples per summer. The NYS Primary Contact or "Swimming" Standard of 200 cells per 100 ml and Secondary Contact Standard (e.g., for wading, boating, fishing) of 2,000 cells per 100 ml are also depicted.
