How Safe is the Hudson River’s Water? The Jury is Mixed

Although the river’s water quality has improved since the 1960s, according to New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation, “leftovers from past pollution haunt the Hudson, and new problems are becoming evident.” Until 1986, the department noted that 150 million gallons of raw sewage used to enter the river daily.

The state passed a billion dollar Pure Waters Bond Act in 1965 to fund sewage treatment for the Hudson River, the agency continued. The river also benefited from the nation’s 1972 Clean Water Act.

It is “generally” safe to swim in the body of water, the DEC indicated, but “official swimming beaches are scarce.”

“Near Albany, sewage plants do not disinfect their discharges, raising the risk of disease. In New York and other cities, rainfall enters storm drains and then flows to sewage treatment plants,” the department stated online.

“The combined flows from sewers and storm drains often exceed plant capacities, causing overflows of untreated or poorly treated waste into the Hudson.”
