EPA Region 2 and the New York State Historic Preservation Office this month finalized and ratified a Programmatic Agreement codifying procedures for the treatment of architectural resources and the handling artifacts related to the Superfund cleanup of the Gowanus Canal.

The Programmatic Agreement outlines an Archaeology Monitoring Plan, a Preservation Plan, steps for the treatment of structures and buildings, coordination between the parties, guidelines for “unanticipated discoveries,” and steps for resolution of disputes.

The Programmatic Agreement will be in effect until the completion of the Superfund cleanup of the Gowanus Canal, or or 10 years, whichever is earlier.
