Mike Dulong

Legal Program Director


Michael Dulong joined Riverkeeper in May 2012. He focuses primarily on protecting New York City’s urban waters by working with community and local organizations to reduce polluted sewage and stormwater discharges, clean up toxic sites, and ensure sustainable waterfronts. He watchdogs the upstate drinking water source for 9.5 million New York City and Hudson Valley residents to ensure healthy drinking water while minimizing the impact of water supply operations on upstate communities. Additionally, he works to prevent the harmful impacts from irresponsible fossil fuel production and consumption, advocating instead for clean alternatives and energy efficiency.

Michael received his J.D. from UCLA School of Law in 2011. While there he was an active member of the Moot Court Honors Program, reaching semifinals at the Pace National Environmental Moot Court Competition and serving on the Journal of Environmental Law and Policy. He held clerkships at the Environmental Protection Agency Region II in New York and at the Department of Justice Environmental Enforcement Section in Washington, D.C. Prior to law school, Michael received his B.A., cum laude, from The University of Massachusetts and his M.A. in British and American literature from New York University.
