Enjoying the River: Open for Recreation

The Hudson River is open for recreational activities, including boating and fishing.

The New York State Department of Health has issued an advisory regarding swimming in the immediate vicinity of project equipment. You can view that advisory here.

Boaters traveling in areas where backfilling activities continue to be performed should take care to avoid work areas, which will be marked by buoys. Boaters traveling through work areas are asked to contact the project’s vessel traffic center on VHF Channel 18A for information, as work areas change daily. More information about work areas is provided here.
