No announcement on Superfunding yet but with the city cutting education and public services right and left, it makes you wonder where would they get the money to clean the canal "faster" than the EPA (as they love to say)? A W.R.D.A grant? Not bloody likely!
Anyway, the EPA has been staying in touch with the community with these occasional meetings, and that makes me feel positive that it is going to happen.
From their press release:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites you to attend a public information meeting to discuss community involvement tools available for the Gowanus Canal site. Topics covered will include the formation of a Community Advisory Group (CAG), Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) and Technical Assistance Services for Communities (TASC).
When: Thursday, January 21,
Time:7:00PM - 9:00PM
Location:P.S. 32 - 317 Hoyt Street, Brooklyn, NY
