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.

Today was our second #waterquality sampling day of 2019. This will be our fourth season of regular monitoring in partnership with @laguardiacc - and we look forward to a full and relatively healthy season out on #newtowncreek

Hopefully conditions will improve from 2018 when abnormally high levels of rainfall led to an increase in #combinedseweroverflow and some horrific water quality results. Image 2 shows the last 3 years of collection across 5 sites in the Creek. As seen, the sewage indicating bacteria Enterococcus was well above #cleanwateract standards.

Remember to conserve water during rainstorms to combat CSO and help protect places like Newtown Creek.

Major thanks to @gcefund and @nysdec for supporting our sampling program. Find out more about our results on our website. @ Greenpoint, Brooklyn ... See MoreSee Less

Wow, beautiful illustration from @libbyvanderploeg of Newtown Creek wildlife. There is definitely documentation for *most* of these creatures.
