Report Lays the Groundwork To Revive Hudson Estuary

Publication Date: 5/6/2009

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have released a draft plan for the restoration of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary that they hope will lead to a more coordinated effort to remediate the heavily polluted area. Released on April 14, the two-volume Comprehensive Restoration Plan (CRP) provides a framework for restoring the estuary. Corps officials say the plan represents a consensus view of how the estuary—roughly defined as the waters and wetlands within a 25-mile radius of the Statue of Liberty—should be restored. Sources say the plan, the result of a 1999 congressional request, will enable different organizations to work in a more coordinated way. Questions still remain about how the ambitious plan will be funded. It does not set any priorities.
