VIDEO: Buffalo River Dredging Underway (USA)

The Buffalo River Restoration Partnership, a unique public-private-non-profit partnership, including U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper and Honeywell is moving forward with plans to address a number of environmental problems affecting the Buffalo River.

The environmental challenges include contaminated river sediments, poor water quality, a lack of safe public access, and insufficient fish and wildlife habitat. This partnership brings together diverse resources and expertise and has developed plans for a comprehensive cleanup and transformation of the river into a beneficial environmental, economic, and community resource.

24/7, six days a week, crews from Sevenson Environmental Services are working on he Buffalo River Restoration Partnership. Contaminated sediment close to the banks of the river is being removed, limited areas capped and the habitat restored.

According to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, “The cleanup falls within the lower six miles of the Buffalo River and the City Ship Canal. The project was designed to minimize impact on river users. Approximately 488,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment will be removed using a clam-shell bucket.
