Waterfront Development Watch

Riverkeeper monitors and reviews proposed development projects along the Hudson River that may have adverse impacts on critical habitats. We engage developers, government, and coalitions to practice and promote smart growth and low impact development.

Riverkeeper inserts itself into the development review process by using the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). SEQRA requires that the potential environmental impacts of government actions, such as approving a development project, are thoroughly considered. The SEQRA process allows for public participation, so that government agencies can make a fully informed decision.
