Dedicated to Improving the Water Quality of the Hudson River

The Albany CSO Pool Communities Corporation is an organization comprised of Capital Region municipalities with a focus on developing and implementing water infrastructure projects that will improve the water quality of the Hudson River and its tributaries.

Since 2014, six Capital Region municipalities joined the Albany and Rensselaer County Sewer Districts to create the Albany Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Pool Communities Corporation.

The Corporation is responsible for developing and executing a Long-Term Control Plan, mandated by a NYSDEC Administrative Order, that protects and improves water quality in the Capital Region and is charged with facilitating infrastructure improvements for wastewater systems in a fiscally and environmentally sound way.
