Hudson River Anchorages – private website devoted to the Hudson River barge anchorages issue
- NY State Senate and Assembly Bills:
On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed this legislation that gives the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation added authority to establish exclusion zones for tanker anchorages along certain sections of NY State waterways based on the potential environmental and waterfront impacts of transporting petroleum. A number of Hastings residents have worked tirelessly through NYCD16 to oppose the new barge anchorages and support this legislation. The new law does not pre-empt Federal authority but strengthens the State’s role as one of the entities with jurisdiction over barge traffic. It is an important step forward, but it does not remove the threat of the Coast Guard designating more permanent barge anchorages on the Hudson River.
