“A Clean Water Landmark for NYC
A landmark agreement announced March 13 between New York City and the state will lead to $2.4 billion in investments to reduce sewage pollution in the Hudson River, Newtown Creek, Gowanus Canal and other waterways. The agreement reflects years of Riverkeeper advocacy, in partnership with the SWIM coalition, to advance green infrastructure, preserve citizen rights to clean water law enforcement, and take significant strides toward achieving the Clean Water Act goals of making even our urban waterways safe for swimming and fishing.
