Summary of the Draft Scope for the Hudson River Natural Resource Damage Assessment Plan
In their capacity as Trustees of the Hudson River, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the United States Department of the Interior are beginning to prepare an assessment plan as part of the Hudson River Natural Resource Damages Assessment process. The purpose of the assessment plan is to ensure that the trustees perform the assessment in a planned and systematic manner, and that it is conducted at a reasonable cost.
Before preparing the Plan itself, the Trustees have first prepared this document, the Draft Scope for the Hudson River Natural Resource Damages Assessment Plan, referred to as the "Draft Scope". The Draft Scope is a preliminary outline of the contents of what will be the Hudson River Natural Resource Damages Assessment Plan. The Trustees are offering this Draft Scope for public comment so that we may involve all concerns at the earliest possible stage. For additional information, please contact Steven Sanford at: Natural Resource Damages Unit 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-1090, phone: (518) 457-7987 fax: (518) 485-8424.
The Hudson River Natural Resource Trustees look forward to your continued participation in the assessment and restoration of Hudson River natural resources. The full Draft Plan will be issued for public comment through a formal review process.
