The state Department of Environmental Conservation awarded $245,233 to Riverkeeper to pay for the removal of unused and outdated dams and stream barriers in Dutchess, Putnam and four other counties to restore habitats for fish such as American eel and river herring.
The grant program implements priorities outlined in the Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda, which was created in 1996 and last updated in 2015. See dec.ny.gov/lands/5104.html.
