Dredge spoil dump on Houghtaling Island

Dredge process water is being discharged from the spoil dump on Houghtaling Island into Schodack Creek. Permit?

We were unable to get the "Fletcher" north past Saugerties in early December because of ice.

Trailered the skiff to Stuyvesant to investigate an active ACE dredge spoil dump on Houghtaling Island.
