I have been surveying stormwater plastic trash along the banks of Philadelphia area creeks and rivers to assess the impact of Philadelphia’s street litter on our receiving waters. My overall survey plan is shown in this map:
This post reports on photo surveys of site 4 (General Pulaski Park) and site 5 (Penn Treaty Park).
General Pulaski Park, with its very limited river front, has stormwater trash in the southeast corner of the Park along the river front, as shown in this photo.
Penn Treaty Park is a 9.7 acre waterfront park with nearly 1,100 feet of accessible river front that can be viewed during low tide.
