Riverkeeper Update with Dan Shapley

HMM correspondent Spencer speaks with Dan Shapley, Water Quality Program Director of Riverkeeper, on recent legislative actions and water quality issues in the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers.

Riverkeeper was established in 1966 and was first known as the Hudson River Fishermen’s Association when local fishers formed the group to reverse the effects of pollution by factories on the river. They have three missions: “guarding your waterways, defending clean drinking water, and finding solutions.” While there have been significant strides to clean the river, much work is still needed and budget cuts in government funding and climate change are causing these missions to get harder.
