The NYC Department of Environmental Protection is kicking off its program to develop Long Term Control Plans (LTCPs) for NYC waterbodies impacted by combined sewer overflows (CSOs) with a Public Open House on:
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
3:00pm to 8:00pm
Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Visitor Center
329 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222
During the Open House, DEP will provide a brief presentation on the LTCP process at 4:00pm and again at 6:30pm.
WHAT IS THE LONG TERM CONTROL PLAN?
A long term control plan consists of a comprehensive evaluation of long term solutions to reduce CSOs and improve water quality in NYC’s waterways and waterbodies. The goal of the LTCP is to identify appropriate CSO controls necessary to achieve waterbody – specific water quality standards, consistent with Federal CSO Policy and subsequent guidance.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
At the Open House, you will be able to learn about DEP’s current and upcoming efforts to reduce CSOs and how you can provide input on possible solutions. Also, DEP staff will be available throughout the session to answer any questions you may have. Please extend this invite to your friends and colleagues.
To RSVP, please email Shane Ojar at SOjar@dep.nyc.gov or call DEP’s Community Partnerships Office at (718) 595-3496.
