Dredging Fix at Alpine & Englewood Boat Basins

Patroled the Alpine and Englewood Boat Basins. Both are owned by the Palisades Interstate Park (PIP). In the past PIP has been conducting maintenance dredging at both marinas in a manner which appears to capture dredged sediment, but in fact, releases it right back into the Hudson through hidden discharge pipes. Riverkeeper has succeeded in pressuring the NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) to tighten controls. Today we photo-documented changes being made to the dredge settling ponds to comply with the new permit.
