ACOE Will Meet to Discuss Plans on Storm Surge Barriers

ACOE Will Meet to Discuss Plans on Storm Surge Barriers

The Army Corps of Engineers is working on plans to develop enormous flood walls and offshore barriers to manage storm surge. Many of which could threaten the ecology and destroy the biodiversity of the river. This is an urgent matter that we need your help in fighting!

The ACOE is holding meetings for public comment on the subject July 9th-11th. If you live in the NYC, NY Harbor or Hudson area up to Troy, we urge you to attend these meetings as it will drastically impact your community.

The Riverkeeper Alliance has more information about the floodwalls themselves on their website that you can visit here.
