If this guy approves, the water must be great so come on in! The historic Hudson River is the swim venue for the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon. The Hudson River is the cleanest it has been in 30 years and is considered bathing and recreation quality.
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) monitors the testing on a weekly basis in the Hudson River to ensure the water meets the Triathon's strict standards.
