Upcoming: Gowanus Water Quality Meeting
Anyone interested in the topic of water quality in the Gowanus Canal and plans to improve it will want to mark their calendars for February 12 when there will be a meeting to present that massive Gowanus Canal Waterbody/Watershed Facility Plan Report. The 564-page document deals with water quality in the canal and plans to improve it, including the reduction of those awful events called CSOs (Combined Sewer Overflows) when raw sewage flows directly into the canal. The plan is detailed, so the best way to get a sense of it may be to listen to the presentations next month. The meeting will take place at 6:30PM at PS 58, which is located at 330 Smith Street (at Carroll Street). The red dots on the map above, which we took from the report, are spots where raw sewage can flow into the canal.
