Last Week's Results

Would you like to see more dredging along the upper Hudson River?

Yes 55%

No 45%




Your thoughts on your dredging the Hudson River:

Answer: Yes."Absolutely, it's ridiculous to have such a beautiful river that you can't fish or swim in." -Phil D., Mechanicville


Answer: No."Do we really expect GE and the federal government to take this pollution seriously when so many of our upstate Riverside communities dump raw sewage into the same Waters?" -Rick C., New Baltimore


Answer: Yes."Dredging should continue so the Hudson can be as clean as possible. Though maybe it isn't worth the effort if Trump is going to continue to loosen regulations and allow corporations to pollute more in the future." -Tom J., Rochester


Answer: No."They would do more damage to the river ecosystem than leaving it alone. The entire system should be taken into consideration." -Richard V., Greece


Answer: Yes."I wish Basil was as vocal about gas compressor stations being built in people's backyards as he is about this." -Andrew S., Horseheads


Answer: No."DEC is overlooking the fact that dredging is not an effective remediation process. Dredging just uncovers buried sediment and resuspends it until it accumulates somewhere else in the river.You can't repeat the process and expect a different outcome." -Chris J., Greenwich


Answer: Yes."The Hudson could be enjoyed by the State's people in multiple ways,if only it were cleaned up. It should be an asset to all of us, not a "policy issue"! (BTW, you should have mentioned all three candidates in the Rochester primary. I heard only two, although my hearing isn't perfect).
Further BTW, the light blue words on your website are VERY hard to read."
-Don J., Rochester
