Urge Governor Cuomo: Support Energy Efficiency for New York

Urge Governor Cuomo to show national leadership on energy efficiency by advancing a comprehensive, equitable, and ambitious energy efficiency initiative that will improve energy affordability, reduce pollution, and enable New York State to successfully achieve its nation-leading climate and clean energy goals.



Tell Governor Cuomo: Don’t Break Your Promise on Plastic Bags

Last February, Governor Cuomo and the state legislature killed a New York City law that aimed to reduce the use of plastic bags. Governor Cuomo must follow through on his promise to address plastic bag pollution. Urge him to take action and introduce legislation to address single-use plastic bags.



Tell EPA: Don’t Shutdown the PCB Cleanup

A decision on the future of GE’s PCBs cleanup is right around the corner. Recent announcements from the EPA demonstrates that they are listening. Let’s keep up the pressure! Urge the new Regional Administrator Pete Lopez to act for a Healthy Hudson.

 Tell Congress: NY Needs a Robust, Fully Funded EPA

President Trump’s attempt to dismantle the EPA is a disaster in the making for New York’s water. We know what New York looks like without an EPA, and we refuse to go backward. Stand up for science and clean water. Urge your member of Congress to fight for New York values by rejecting Trump’s  budget cuts and staff cuts to the EPA.


Report Dead Sturgeon

Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon are protected by the Endangered Species Act, and New York has committed to limiting impacts on these fish throughout the construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge project. Riverkeeper is carefully monitoring the process, and we’ve retained the right to enforce the permit requirements designed to protect sturgeon if sturgeon are being harmed. Be watchful when visiting the river, and make timely and thorough reports if you observe a dead sturgeon.
