Newtown Creek Water Quality

Newtown Creek Vision Plan

Over the past year, NCA worked closely with our partners at Riverkeeper and Perkins+Will to create the Newtown Creek Vision plan, a 150 page report chronicling priority issues and 85 proposed projects to address Remediation, Restoration, Recreation and Resilience. The report builds upon decades of planning and visioning efforts by numerous community members and organizations; framing ideas in the wake of upcoming Superfund remediation and Clean Water improvements. We look forward to continuing these planning conversations with local residents, businesses, agencies and elected officials.

On Monday we spotted another incident of dumping at the end of Apollo street in Greenpoint.

After we reported the debris, @nysdec launched an investigation (currently ongoing) and @nycsanitation removed the debris this morning.

We have conducted many volunteer cleanup events at Apollo and other street ends around the Creek, but despite our best efforts these remain target areas for illegal dumping.

Many thanks to both agencies for addressing this issue, especially during a pandemic. If folks out there see pollution like this please let us and the appropriate agencies know so we can help protect #newtowncreek
