Don't drink the water or eat the fish.

Yummm...PCB's, lead and chemicals whose names have 18 letters in them, with my trout. What a waste of good fish. Are they kidding?
Hint: If you catch a trout and it has more fins than it needs or eyes greater than 2....don't eat it.
I hope this isn't another government idea of "urban renewal".

It is very easy to determine whether the fish are edible.... eat'em if nothing is detected.

Then they can join the threee legged frogs in Newtown. But you get any poisons detected in anything unless it's above 2.5 mg per litre, or as big as a golf ball. The action level for lead is 0.015 but the test won't tell you it's there until 2.5, or you're dead!

It's hard to find a good fish sandwich these days. Does anybody know where you can get one? Hopefully, their fish doesn't come from this river!!

Thanks "Bpt", I'll try them out. I know that the Merritt Canteen has been in existance for a very long time. You don't get to do that unless your food is good!

??????? Toxins and contaminants are measured in parts per million. Lead poisoning doesn't kill you unless it's absurdly high.

You have an obsession with toxins- I'm beginning to feel genuinely bad about throwing some stuff in your garden.

Here's a quote plucked from a federal report on the Hudson River PCB contamination:

10/14/93 DEC holds public meeting regarding Hudson Falls site,
identifies the following areas of contamination:- ground
water; trace levels to 90% PCBs - sediment in Allens Mill
raceways; 2,000 to 50,000 parts per million - sediment in
Hudson River adjacent to plant; 20,000 ppm

I can't say much about the fish, but I do have crabs.
