Croton River Compact

Croton River

Croton River Compact
Unified Protection for the Whole Watershed

The Indian Brook Croton Gorge Watershed Conservation Action Plan is a comprehensive watershed plan developed for the Croton Bay Watershed, which consists of the Croton Gorge and Indian Brook subwatersheds (see map on right).  The final plan was completed in November 2007.   The Westchester County Department of Planning produced the report in close collaboration with the towns of Cortlandt, New Castle, Ossining and the villages of Croton-on-Hudson and Ossining.  Additional support and funding was provided by the Hudson River Estuary Program of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
The five major goals for the plan are:

Protecting and restoring the natural resources, most significantly the Croton River, Indian Brook Reservoir, existing wetlands and groundwater drinking sources

Developing and implementing stormwater management practices that will improve water quality

Promoting sustainable development through land use and environmental regulations

Preserving and protecting fish, wildlife and significant habitat

Educating the public
