Riverkeeper is hosting a series of events in the Upper Hudson region to present data collected in 2016 as part of our first year of water quality sampling in the region, and to recruit volunteers to assist with sampling in 2017.

The Hudson River Estuary is tidal from New York Harbor to the Troy Dam in the Capital District. Above the dam, the Upper Hudson stretches about 150 miles from Lake Tear of the Clouds, in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. Riverkeeper has sampled the Hudson River Estuary since 2008, and expanded into the Upper Hudson in 2016.

Data from 2016 is available here, and will soon be available at https://www.riverkeeper.org/water-quality/citizen-data/
