Groups Ask Governor Paterson to Support Alternative Plan for Cohoes Falls Hydro Project

Riverkeeper, Scenic Hudson, Natural Resources Defense Council, Village and Town of Green Island, City of Watervliet, Capital District Regional Planning Commission, Friends of the Falls, New York Bicycling Coalition, and the Public Utility Law Project have written a joint letter to Governor Paterson urging him to lend his support to alternative proposals for the Cohoes Falls hydro project.

A recent decision of the United States Court of Appeals opens the door to improve future use of the hydro site. For more information see our prior post, Second Circuit Requires Further Consideration of Cohoes Falls Options, PULP Network, August 10, 2009.
