As many of you no doubt already know, on December 27th, the Environmental Protection Agency released the Proposed Plan for the Superfund clean-up of the Gowanus Canal. The agency has scheduled two public meetings, one in Carroll Gardens and the second in Red Hook, to discuss the details and to answer questions about the plan. I urge everyone in the community to attend since this is the best opportunity to speak directly with Christos Tsiamis, EPA's Project Manager for the Gowanus and with members of his team. So come prepared with your questions.

Above, pleased find the details about the meetings.  *Note that the time for the Carroll Gardens meeting has been changed from 7 PM to 6:30 Pm to allow for more time.

To access the EPA’s proposed plan for the Gowanus Canal site or for more information on the canal, visit http://www.epa.gov/region02/superfund/npl/gowanus/ or visit the EPA’s document repositories at the Carroll Gardens Library at 396 Clinton St. in Brooklyn or the Joseph Miccio Community Center, 110 West 9th Street, Brooklyn.

The EPA will accept public comments on its proposed plan until March 28, 2013.
Written comments on the proposed plan should be addressed to:
Christos Tsiamis
