Castleton Village Stormwater Program

As a Hudson River water front community, the Village of Castleton-on-Hudson understands and values the importance of our water resources. The river provides us with scenic and recreational enjoyment, transportation and commercial opportunities. In return, we are all stewards of the Hudson River. We owe it to ourselves and future generations to preserve and protect this great river.

Recently a team of our local Boy Scouts organized by scout William Noll stenciled all 345 catch basins throughout the Village. Will, who is working on his Eagle Scout merit badge, also completed a Stormwater Educational Board located at the entrance of the Village Hall. We encourage everyone to visit this wonderful addition to our ongoing public outreach on storm water awareness.
