Partners in Restoring the Niagara River AOC
Beginning in 2010, EPA awarded money from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to fund the Niagara River restoration project.
Using funding partially provided by the Great lakes Restoration Initiative, the GLRC has set up a series of real-time monitoring stations located across New York State. The stations serve both as a guide for scientific testing for new instrumentation and as a source of weather and water data for teaching purposes.
NYSDEC works actively with the Canadians on the Niagara River issues. These activities include river monitoring, control of industrial and municipal waste, proper management and cleanup of dumpsites, identification of chemicals of concern, and cooperation on other technical and scientific issues.
This commission was established in late 2004 to work with participating state agencies, organizations and residents in order to restore parks and conservation areas the Niagara River riverfront, to be known as the Niagara River Greenway. The Greenway will increase landside access to the river; create free access to the greenway from the river; strengthen economic recovery efforts and celebrate the industrial history in Niagara and Erie Counties.
