Comments on Newtown Creek Superfund OU2 Proposal

In late 2019, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a proposed plan which recommends no further action to reduce the volume of combined sewer overflows to Newtown Creek. The plan cites the implementation of the Long Term Control Plan for Newtown Creek, which estimates reducing the volume of discharge by approximately 61% from current levels, as sufficient.

Comments on the plan were due on Friday, February 28, 2020. See our comments here:
