Young people from Troy are taking on the water quality in the Hudson River.

A new collaboration between Riverkeeper and the Sanctuary for Independent Media is giving Troy kids a chance to learn more about the Hudson.

The group is called Water Justice.

Teens will be testing the water for bacteria and tracking health and safety standards in the Hudson River Watershed.
Genesis Cooper, 14, tells NewsChannel 13 she became interested in the water issue after seeing the lead contamination story last year in Flint, Michigan.  Now she wants to affect change in her own backyard.

"Taking how we can solve the problem of its pollution and make it better so that everyone can have clean drinking water and clean bathing water," explained Genesis.

A physical lab for the Water Justice program is being built now in North Troy and will be done some time next year.
