The Hudson River Environmental Conditions Observing System (HRECOS) is a robust environmental monitoring network operated and managed by a consortium of governmental, academic, and private institutions with shared interest in high-frequency monitoring within the Hudson River watershed. HRECOS monitoring stations are geographically distributed along the Hudson and Mohawk rivers, and are equipped with sensors that continuously record a suite of water quality and weather parameters every 15 minutes, with most stations operating year-round. Remote telemetry at each station transmits real-time data that is stored in remote databases and made easily accessible with HRECOS mapper application (https://ny.water.usgs.gov/maps/hrecos/). HRECOS works to improve the capacity of regional river and estuary stakeholders to: understand the ecosystem and manage water resources, provide baseline monitoring data necessary for applied research and modeling, support the use of real-time data in educational settings, provide policy makers and emergency managers with data products to guide decision making, and provide information for safe and efficient commercial use and recreational activities.
