During the summer of 1940 it was indicated that waters of the Raritan Bay area were of doubtful sanitary quality for the taking of clams. Therefore, a detailed survey was made and a standard defining the allowable limits of pollution within which the public health would not be endangered by the taking of clams from the area was formulated. The survey covered practically the entire period of April, May and June, 1941, and was made by three cooperating laboratories whose procedures were coordinated under the immediate direction and supervision of the U.S. Public Health Service.
