DEP Westchester Creek LTCP Kick-Off Meeting on 26 Feb 2014

NYC DEP will be holding a Public Kick-off Meeting for the  WESTCHESTER CREEK CSO LONG TERM CONTROL PLAN

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

JHS 125 Henry Hudson

1111 Pugsley Avenue, 1st Floor, Bronx NY 10472

6:00pm to 8:00pm

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

As part of the Long Term Control Program (LTCP), DEP is developing comprehensive evaluations of long term solutions to reduce combined sewer overflows (CSOs) and improve water quality in New York City’s waterbodies and waterways. The goal of each LTCP is to identify appropriate CSO controls necessary to achieve waterbody-specific water quality standards, consistent with the Federal CSO Policy and the water quality goals of the Clean Water Act.

 At the meeting, an overview of watershed characteristics and water quality conditions will be provided. In addition, staff from the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will present on proposed efforts to reduce CSOs for Westchester Creek. Citizens will learn how they can be a part of the public participation process. DEP seeks information and involvement of local citizens in developing this plan. Please share the attached flyer with your constituents and any other interested stakeholders.



DEP and DEC staff will be available to answer any questions you may have.

To RSVP or for more information, please email ltcp@dep.nyc.gov or call DEP’s Community Affairs Office at (718) 595-3496.
