Gowanus Canal Superfund Community Advisory Group To Meet Tomorrow And On February 24

The Gowanus Canal Superfund Community Advisory Committee (CAG) will be meeting tomorrow evening February 10th at 6:30 at Mary Star of the Sea Senior Center, 41 First Street.

Representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency will be on hand to give an update on upcoming activities on the Canal.
The CAG's Water Quality/Technical Committee will also be discussing its response to NY State's Department of Environmental Conservation's proposed amendments to 6 NYCRR Parts 701 and 703 for Class I and Class SD waters regarding Class 1 and SD waterways to meet the "swimmable" goal of the federal Clean Water Act.
These proposed amendments will have a positive impact on the Gowanus Canal.

The CAG will also be holding a meeting on February 24 at 6:30 (location to be announced)
Councilmember Brad Lander will present the results of "Bridging Gowanus", a  proposed framework for the future development of the Gowanus area.

All CAG meetings are open to the community and I urge everyone to attend.
