The Gowanus Canal Community Advisory Group adopted the following resolution at its April, 2013 General Meeting, in regard to the Water Quality/Technical Committee’s comment on the EPA’s Proposed Remedial Action Plan (PRAP) for the Gowanus Canal:

As the Proposed Plan establishes methods for removal of contaminated sediments for the entire width and length of the canal, to the depth of native sediment, and has identified ways to prevent re-contamination and halt future toxic inputs, the Gowanus CAG supports the EPA Proposed Plan to clean the Gowanus Superfund site. The CAG looks forward to continued open discussions with the EPA as project design details are developed, and thanks the EPA for reaching out to the various communities and being responsive to their concerns.
