On patrol: Upper Estuary, Troy dam

Met U.S. Coast Guard and New York Department of Environmental Conservation Thursday aboard the DEC Region 4 patrol boat. They are beginning to create revised/upgraded GIS-based local spill response plans – starting here and working down the River. The transport of crude oil through New York State is driving change – slowly.

Nice to see old friends. We’ve been working with these Coast Guard guys on the crude oil issue for two years and the DEC officers for many years on the Upper Estuary.


There has been lots of water entering the Estuary over the Troy dam from the Mohawk and Upper Hudson after a week of heavy rains in central New York.
