    Dolphin dies in polluted New York City canal

    Struggling dolphin dies in polluted New York City canal

    Just wonder, does it mean open-water swimmers should be concerned about the water quality in NYC?

    Well that's just plain sad. It's possible the Dolphin was sick to begin with, but I'm sure swimming up a Super-fund site didn't help.

    I don't know how they do things on the East Coast, but when I participate in an OW swim in a local inner-city lake here in Arizona, a water test is always performed prior to the race to ensure the water is safe to swim in.
    I would give up chocolate, but I'm no quitter.

    No one swims in the Gowanus Canal, silly.
