DEP will provide a brief presentation at 6:30pm.

When there are heavy rains and the sewer system is at full capacity, a diluted mixture of rain water and sewage, known as combined sewage, may overflow into local waterways as a combined sewer overflow (CSO). The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is currently developing CSO Long Term Control Plans (LTCP) that will identify and evaluate alternatives to reduce the impact of CSOs in NYC’s waterbodies and waterway.

At this Annual Citywide Public Meeting, DEP will report on the work performed in 2014 on the individual LTCPs for Alley Creek, Westchester Creek, Hutchinson River, Flushing Creek and the Gowanus Canal and provide a look ahead to the upcoming LTCPs for Bronx River and Coney Island. In addition, DEP will provide an update on its Green Infrastructure program and NYC’s Climate Resiliency Plan.

Join us as we seek your input to improve water quality in the City’s waterbodies.
