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.

Dutchess County legislators are going to vote Monday night on a resolution asking the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to conduct a study of the potential impacts of a crude oil spill in or near the Hudson River.
