Upcoming: Gowanus Water Quality & Issues Meeting

That big forum about water quality and other issues concerning the Gowanus Canal is coming up this week. It will be held on Thursday (12/6). Called "The Future of the Gowanus Canal: A Community Forum on Environmental Quality," it will include New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Pete Grannis. Representatives from the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, the Army Corps of Engineers and a variety of Gowanus Canal advocates. The meeting will take place from 6PM-8PM at the Belorusian Chruch at Atlantic Avenue and Bond Street. Sponsoring organizations include Community Board 6, the Gowanus Canal Community Development Corp, the Gowanus Canal Conservancy, FROGG, the Urban Divers and many others. Mr. Grannis will apparently get a boat tour of the canal before the meeting.

Let's hope that this isn't another one of those meetings where the DEP shows their old slide show while chanting that they are "cleaning up" the canal.
We need a real admission that this cleanup goal is to achive the lowest standard of water quality, one in which the DEP is not accountable for the pathogens in this water.
