State Adds Marion River Carry To Adirondack Forest Preserve

"The state has added the historic Marion River carry to the Forest Preserve, ending a long-running dispute over the ownership of 216 parcels of land near the hamlet of Raquette Lake.
The deal secures a five-hundred-yard trail used by paddlers portaging between Utowana Lake and the Marion River. The carry is an essential part of a canoe route between Blue Mountain Lake and Raquette Lake.
The Open Space Institute bought the 296-acre parcel in 2012 for $2 million and transferred it to the state this year at no cost to the state.
Before OSI stepped in, the Marion River property faced the possibility of development, which might have cut off public access. But the OSI acquisition also offered a solution to a legal dispute dating back to the 1800s."

How bad is drug pollution in the Hudson?

"Scientists are taking samples of the Hudson River this month to measure how much pharmaceutical pollution gets washed into the waterway during heavy rains and to pinpoint its source."

"Anti-depressants, blood pressure medicine, decongestants and other medicines have already been detected in the Hudson in preliminary samples. The latest round of testing is a larger sweep of the river at a time of the year when pollution overall is washing into the Hudson at a greater rate due to runoff and sewage overflows."
