Table of ContentsReturn to Sites Table of Contents

The information in this form is based on information in the original South Shore Estuary Survey.  Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made.  Corrections to factual errors, updates or comments on the information are enclosed either in [square brackets] or are clearly indicated as updates in the text..  Since the surveys were conducted in the Summer of 2004, the information reflects that time period unless otherwise noted.  Because the South Shore Estuary Survey report format is not entirely consistent with the original Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities/Town of Brookhaven survey formats, there are a few additional fields on this page not found on the original forms.  The original South Shore Estuary Survey Report is available as a PDF document by clicking on the below.
