Improving Water Quality

There are solutions available to us today that will measurably improve water quality in the Hudson River. Riverkeeper’s Swimmable River report addresses the water quality challenges facing the river today and puts forth a three-prong strategy to solving these problems:

Increased monitoring and notification is needed to understand the health of the river, to track down specific causes of exceedences, and to enable regulators to inform the public with more timely and accurate information.

Investment in wastewater infrastructure is needed to ensure the lasting protection of water quality.

Better water quality policies are needed to improve the quality of treatment and overall water management.

  • Increased Monitoring and Notification

  • Investment in Wastewater Infrastructure

  • Better Water Quality Policies
