The Hudson River Foundation works to improve water and sediment quality, and advance progress toward fishable and swimmable waterways. We fund research on the mechanics of sediment transport and the chemical effects of contaminants such as dioxins, PCBs, and PFAs chemicals. HRF-funded research has generated nearly 60 peer-reviewed papers and over 2,500 citations.
The New York - New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program brings together key agencies, utilities, environmental organizations and other stakeholders to document water quality trends and to advance pollution reduction efforts across the bi-state waters of the estuary. Together, the information gathered can be used to help target investments in water management and guidance on public health concerns.
