Improving Water and Sediment Quality


The Hudson River Foundation works to improve water and sediment quality, and advance progress toward fishable and swimmable waterways. The Foundation funds research to understand the mechanics of sediment transport and chemical effects of contaminants. The New York - New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program brings together key agencies, utilities, environmental organizations and other stakeholders to document water quality status and trends to advance pollution reduction efforts across the bi-state waters of the estuary. Together, the information gathered can be used to help guide decisions on restoration and public access projects.
