Manhattan: Dyckman Marina

After our patrol boat discovered suspicious activity at Dyckman Marina, on the northern tip of Manhattan, Riverkeeper staff investigated and discovered an illegal fill operation conducted by the marina operator.

Construction debris and soil were being pushed into the Hudson by a front-loader to expand the marina’s shore, without a permit or any controls to protect the shoreline or river habitat. Riverkeeper filed a Notice of Intent to Sue under the Federal Clean Water Act and the illegal actions ceased. We will determine the extent of the damage and pursue a remedy in the months to come.
