The newly-released Hudson River Comprehensive Restoration Plan details the current conditions of the Hudson River estuary, identifies potential restoration sites and recognizes the needs that must be addressed in the coming decades to restore the river and prepare for future conditions, including rising sea levels and increasingly frequent and severe storms.
Combining natural resource and people needs with potential projects related to river restoration, including community infrastructure and waterfront access opportunities, the plan focuses on the 125-mile stretch of the estuary from Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to the Federal Lock and Dam at Troy.
This assessment of the estuary will help inform and guide management and conservation actions for decades to come. The plan can help to ensure a sustainable, healthy future for our river so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
