If you are on the River and observe any impacts, please see below to report them.
The NY Department of Environmental Conservation is asking everybody who spends time on or near the river to contact them if they see any evidence of impacts to wildife/habitat or fuel oil build-up, especially in the quiet eddies and pools near the riverbanks. Look for a reddish/brownish sheen on the surface of the river that looks similar to brake fluid or transmission fluid.Please take a picture of any observed impacts with GPS coordinates and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org if you see negative impacts of the spill and we'll forward them to the NYSDEC.
