Don't forget to Like the page!The City of Cohoes would like to educate residents on stormwater and the importance of protecting it. The City is responsible for monitoring how much rainwater flows into our local streams and must be watchful of the pollutants carried along the way. We urge every resident to get involved and join us in taking action to protect our local streams, ponds, reservoirs, and wetlands.
Any comments on the Annual Report should be sent to Garry Nathan, City Engineer.
