Trash only visible during low water.
Water Access: The Medina St boat launch (Chicopee Water Pollution Control Facility area). This location is down river on the opposite bank of the launch but it is close enough to see.
Land Access: I've never tried to reach the site by land, but it is right where the Goldine Brook connects to the CT River. It is also behind a shopping plaza.
Type(s) of trash at the site
Mostly car tires, also large tractor tires.
