Call EPA: Don’t Shutdown the PCB Cleanup

Leah Rae/Riverkeeper

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 Governor Cuomo: Release the Risk Assessment

Two years ago the Governor promised an independent risk assessment to address concerns regarding the proximity of the AIM/Spectra pipeline to Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant. Nearly, two years later, advocates are still waiting for the state to release the report. Urge Governor Cuomo to keep his promise and release the risk assessment!



 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

dead-sturgeon-200Atlantic 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. Report Your Observations.
