An environmental group in the Hudson Valley has released a study on the risks of oil spills in the Hudson River. Scenic Hudson commissioned the study that looks at threats at nine locations between Yonkers and Albany.

Two Democratic New York Congressmen and local stakeholders stood at the Yonkers waterfront Monday afternoon to talk about potential anchorage proposals for the Hudson River. Though they praised a U.S. Coast Guard study, the lawmakers and environmentalists also made it clear they are doubling down on opposition to any long-term anchorage sites in future proposals.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of clean water advocate Riverkeeper. There have been milestone celebrations, including a star-studded fundraiser. Yet the heart of the Ossining-based organization’s work is on the water — the Hudson River and its tributaries. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne recently spent a few hours aboard the Riverkeeper patrol boat with Captain John Lipscomb.
