    WHO we are:

This web presentation of benthic data for the Tappan Zee zone has been provided by the Crotonville Neighborhood Association of Ossining and by the design studios of and Lizard Interactive as a public service project to bring greater awareness of the characteristics of the Hudson River in the vicinity of Ossining, NY.

In 1998 the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation began mapping the submerged lands of the Hudson River Estuary. The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) was contracted by the NYS DEC to coordinate the Benthic Habitat Project and its work was conducted through the Hudson River Estuary Program and the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve. Research was conducted by the NEIWPCC, The Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the Marine Sciences Research Center at Stony Brook University, and The Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory.
