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.

Tonight and Wednesday night: EPA is hosting two public comment meetings regarding their proposed ‘No Further Action’ plan for reduction of Combined Sewer Overflow.

The current plan will achieve a 61% reduction by 2042; but will still leave hundreds of millions of gallons of untreated sewage, combined with polluted stormwater entering stagnant areas of the Creek every year (as captured in the above video).

Attend these meetings to learn more and let the agencies know we need further action to protect our waterway.

Two weeks ago we traveled with our partners from @laguardiacc to learn more about the floating wetland projects happening in Baltimore harbor. It was a very illuminating visit with great insights from the wonderful folks at @baltimore_aquarium and @bmoretoolbank

We are very excited to take some of the lessons learned and apply them to our evolving wetland restoration work here on #newtowncreek
