EPA's Gowanus Superfund Site Project Manager Tsiamis To Discuss Feasibility Study At Tonight's CAG Meeting


The Gowanus Canal Superfund Community Advisory Group (CAG) will hold its general meeting tonight, May 31st, in the auditorium at the PS 58, 330 Smith Street, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. On the agenda is a discussion from Christos Tsiamis, US Environmental Protection Agency's Gowanus Superfund Site Project Manager, on the upcoming Feasibility Study. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A period.

As opposed to the Remedial Investigation (RI), which was released this past January and determined the nature and the extend of the contamination of the Gowanus, the Feasibility Study (FS), assesses the treatability and analyses the clean-up alternatives for the site.

All are welcomed to tonight's meeting.

Thanks so much for your continued work on updating everyone on the Gowanus canal. I'm curious: are any time lines in place for when the canal might be restored? Thanks!

Hi Nikki,
By 'restored', do you mean when will the actual work of cleaning the canal begin and be done?
The EPA has always talked about the Superfund clean-up lasting about 10 to 12 years.
