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.

We’ve been busy analyzing our water quality data from 2018. These three images show Dissolved Oxygen (DO) levels across the 10 different sites we test in Newtown Creek. Low DO levels are not healthy for fish and other marine wildlife and remain a more serious issue in dead end tributaries (like Dutch Kills and English Kills) that have large combined sewer overflow pipes. This past summer was particularly wet which created more sewage overflow and low DO levels compared to previous years.

The bacteria results are even more daunting...

We are finishing up our water quality summary booklet and will be sharing more analysis over social media leading up to our April 6th Community Science event.

At the community workshop on Tuesday our partners @interval.projects presented three different design schemes for the Gateway to Greenpoint lot based on ideas generated from our first workshop in November. In the coming months we will be synthesizing these ideas into a final site design.

If you were unable to attend the event let us know which elements of the designs are most appealing to you. Feel free to comment here or send us an email.
