"Key Public Meeting on City’s Bronx River Pollution Plan," by Jarrett Murphy. City Limits. February 4, 2015.
"How clean should the Bronx River be? What should be done to get it there? Those are the questions that will be raised as New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection drafts a "long-term control plan," or LTCP for the waterway."

"Despite the return of natural wildlife, the river is still not safe enough to swim in. While fishing is encouraged, it is not advised that you consume your catch due to the water’s quality.
And one of the major problems is the combined sewer outflows (CSO).
When storm water is captured, it mixes with raw sewage, creating too much water for treatment plants to handle. The water, including raw sewage from our toilets and sinks, is then discharged into our waterways through the CSO system."
