This list is subject to a forty-five-day review and comment period by the appropriate management conference, advisory committee or advisory council prior to finalizing such list of projects.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in cooperation with the New York State Departments of State and Agriculture and Markets, proposes the Water Quality Improvement Projects listed in the charts below to be funded with 2001-02 State capital appropriations under Title 3, Section 56-0303 of the Clean Water/Clean Air Bond Act of 1996.

The following types of Water Quality Improvement Projects were considered for funding: (1) wastewater treatment improvement projects; (2) agricultural and nonagricultural nonpoint source abatement and control projects; (3) aquatic habitat restoration projects.

Projects eligible to be funded are Water Quality Improvement Projects to implement management plans for Hudson River.
