Hudson River Estuary Projects Get Boost

New York State DEC Acting Commissioner Marc Gerstman has announced that approximately $770,000 in grant funding was awarded for communities in the Hudson River Estuary to design and plan 18 projects that will increase resiliency to flooding, protect water-quality and conserve natural resources.

Governor Cuomo has a clear vision for creating resilient communities in New York State,” said Acting Commissioner Gerstman.

DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program is doing its part to make this vision a reality in shoreline communities along the estuary. Together these projects are demonstrating how to re-imagine resilient coasts and watersheds, while also improving the Hudson River estuary’s water-quality and habitat.

Some of the following municipalities and organizations received grants:

Hudson River Shoreline Flooding Plans:

  • City of Kingston, $49,684 to convene a Sea Level Rise Implementation Learning Group to collaborate on implementing key actions of the Flooding Task Forces in the village of Piermont, village of Catskill, city of Kingston and the town of Stony Point;
  • Village of Catskill, $25,500 for a Hudson River Shoreline Flooding Plan including an analysis of potential changes to the village’s local zoning code to address resiliency issues;
  • The Nature Conservancy, $50,000 to continue a project to assist local communities to participate in the Hudson River Comprehensive Restoration Plan (HRCRP) process in the Hudson River Restoration Study Area from the Troy dam to the Piermont Marsh.

Hudson River Shoreline Stabilization Plans:

  • Village of Hastings-on-Hudson, $41,650 to implement a Hudson River Shoreline Stabilization Plan to address ongoing erosion issues at a site on the outer bend of the Hudson River;
  • New York Restoration Project, $50,000 to develop a shoreline plan to guide the ongoing reclamation work at Sherman Creek Park.
