Public Meeting on the CSO Long-Term Control Plan for the Gowanus Canal, November 19, 6 p.m. @ Public School 32
Nov 19 @ 11:00 pm – Nov 20 @ 1:00 am

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 Plan (LTCP) that will identify and evaluate alternatives to improve the water quality of the Gowanus Canal. In addition to developing alternatives through the LTCP process, DEP is currently working with the US Environmental Protection Agency under the Superfund process to site and design CSO retention tanks.

This is the first chance for the public to offer input into the design of the Gowanus LTCP.
