Water Treatment Plant

The mission of the Albany Pool Communities is to improve the water quality of the Hudson River and meet water quality standards for this important natural resource.

Working together in unprecedented fashion, the communities will implement more than 65 projects and programs, investing more than $130m dollars to abate combined sewer overflows. In January, 2014, the Six Pool Communities (the cities of Albany, Troy, Cohoes, Rensselaer, Watervliet, and the Village of Green Island) and two County Sewer Districts, executed an Order on Consent administered by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the Department accepted the Pool’s 15-year Long Term Control Plan. Through this Plan, the communities and districts will make significant strides in improving water quality in the Hudson River.
