Meeker Avenue Plume Community Advisory Group Meeting

Join your neighbors in giving voice to the community as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cleans up the heavily contaminated Meeker Avenue Plume Superfund site. All are welcome, no prior knowledge or expertise required.

At the July meeting, we will be speaking with two experienced facilitators of other Community Advisory Groups in Brooklyn. Patrick Field, the current facilitator of the Newtown Creek CAG will be joining from CBI. Doug Sarno, the current facilitator of the Gowanus Canal CAG will also be joining us from the Participation Company.

What is the Meeker Avenue Plume?
The EPA has listed the Meeker Avenue Plume as a Superfund site, meaning it is a heavily contaminated area slated for cleanup. The soil and groundwater at the Meeker Avenue Plume site are contaminated with chemicals harmful to human and environmental health.

Where is the Meeker Avenue Plume?
The area under investigation is in the Greenpoint/East Williamsburg area and spans several city blocks.

What is a Community Advisory Group (CAG)?
A CAG’s purpose is to provide a public forum for community members to present and discuss their needs and concerns related to the Superfund decision-making process.
