NYC Department of Environmental Protection is hosting a community meeting tomorrow evening to talk about the Combined Sewer Outflow (CSO) Long Term Control Plan for the Gowanus Canal.
The meeting most likely will focus on the two retention tanks that the US Environmental Protection Agency has mandated as part of the Superfund clean-up.
(More on the CSO tanks here)
This should be interesting.  Please make sure to attend.

On the CSO Long Term Control Plan for the Gowanus Canal
Wednesday, 19 November 2014
Public School 32
317 Hoyt St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
6:00pm to 8:00pm
Doors open at 6:00pm

DEP will give a brief presentation at 6:30 followed by a question and answer session.

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