The group was not happy that Riverkeeper, one of the most prominent environmental groups in the Hudson Valley, is supporting the plan. A Riverkeeper habitat manager argues that the plan would restore the natural flow of the Palmaghatt Kill, a tributary of the Wallkill River, which would benefit several species of fish and invertebrates.
