The EPA has released a fact sheet detailing the construction of a barrier wall at the head end of the Gowanus Canal, adjacent to the Fulton Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) site. The barrier wall is intended to prevent contaminated materials on the site from entering the canal, and to serve as structural support during the dredging and capping of the canal.
Barrier wall construction began in August, and is targeted for completion in the summer of 2020. It will measure approximately 880 feet, and extend from the top of the canal to the Union Street Bridge.
