|Request for Proposals for Design of Sustainable Shorelines at Nutten Hook
The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC), in partnership with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYS DEC) Hudson River Estuary Program and the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve are soliciting proposals to design a “Sustainable Shorelines” demonstration project at the Nutten Hook site on the Hudson River in the town of Stuyvesant, NY. The goal of this project is to design ecologically-enhanced, engineered shoreline treatment(s) that resist erosion, enhance the recreational use of the site by the public, and improve the habitat value of the site for fish and wildlife species of the Hudson River Estuary. The project design will address present day conditions as well as account for projected increases in frequency of extreme storms and sea-level rise.
Approximately $40,000 is available to support this project. Proposals are due November 13, 2015 at 12 noon. For more information please visit DEC's Hudson River Estuary Program and Sustainable Shorelines web pages. The Request for Applications is available on the website of the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission.
