Keep NYC Waterways Clean

From our friends at NYC H2O.


City Council Hearing on Stormwater Infrastructure
This Wednesday December 13, 2017 10 AM
City Council Chambers, New York City Hall

Dear NYC H2O Enthusiast,

Please attend the City Council hearing on sewage infrastructure this Wednesday and consider giving testimony.

The City and State need to hear how concerned waterway advocates are about the lack of transparency in the approval process and the proposed plans for stormwater infrastructure. When finally implemented in 2030, the current plan will leave 20 billion gallons of raw sewage in our waterways each year.

The NYC DEP and NY State (DEC) did not provide the public with an opportunity to voice our concerns about the City's flawed Combined Sewer Overflow Long Term Control Plans before they approved them in March of this year (see the SWIM Coalitions's fact sheet about this here).

We need to call on the City Council to ensure that NYC gets raw sewage out of our waterways.

Please pass the word about the hearing to everyone you can and let us know you're coming by joining the SWIM Coalition's Facebook Event here!
