Coast Guard says, for now, no new Hudson River anchorages

ALBANY – The US Coast Guard, Tuesday, issued its report on the Hudson River Ports and Waterways Safety Assessment and determined that allowing additional commercial anchorages on the Hudson River between Yonkers and Kingston was not an agreed upon recommendation to come from two workshops.

Scenic Hudson, which was among the leaders in opposing the new barge sites, stated that “While the Coast Guard is not moving forward with new anchorage regulations at this time, the report states that decisions have not been made on whether the Coast Guard will continue to push forward the ill-conceived anchorages proposal in the future.”

The environmental organization said that “Safety on the river can be created without anchorages that would damage the Hudson’s natural resources, community assets and regional economies.”
