This Tuesday, January 12, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will hold its annual public meeting on the citywide Long-Term Control Plans, green infrastructure & municipal separate storm-sewer systems. The meeting will take place at:

LaGuardia Community College
Building E – Poolside Café (use Van Dam Street Entrance)
31-10 Thomson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101

DEP will provide a brief presentation at 6:30pm.

From DEP’s meeting announcement:

When there are heavy rains and the sewer system is at full capacity, a diluted mixture of rain water and sewage, also known as combined sewage, may overflow into local waterways as a combined sewer overflow (CSO). The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is developing a CSO Long Term Control Plans (LTCP) that will identify and evaluate alternatives to improve the water quality around the New York City. DEP will provide a status of the LTCP Program along with updates on the Green Infrastructure and Municipal Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) Programs.

Join us as we seek your input in developing this plan.
