BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Some new NOAA-funded technology is helping the local waterways get cleaner.

NOAA stands for National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Thanks to them, Buffalo Harbor State Park has a new, aquatic trash skimmer. It’s called a Seabin.

Congressman Brian Higgins says “This is a demonstration project. It’s innovative. It’s about trial and error, but our hope is with the two installations here, we will be successful in addressing a major threat, which is manmade, to our waterways.”
