The Schoharie River and Hans Groot’s Kill are both tributaries into the Mohawk River. Thus, it is likely that they all have similar chemical compositions. One-third of the volume of the Mohawk River is contributed by the Schoharie River, while Hans Groot’s Kill also feeds into the Mohawk River after passing through the residential homes of the “GE Plot” and Union College. Some chemicals are naturally occuring while others are introduced to the bodies of water via anthropogenic products.
