Join Riverkeeper and our partners at the SWIM Coalition for the Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) annual update on sewage and stormwater overflow plans (Combined Sewer Overflow – CSO).

Under the Clean Water Act and State mandates, New York City is required to develop and implement eleven “Long Term Control Plans” that detail exactly how, and by how much, the City will reduce the estimated 20 billion gallons of sewage pollution and stormwater discharged from our combined sewer system each year. These plans affect nearly every waterway in every borough.

Advocates, community members, and groups from across the boroughs should attend to stand together to call for robust investment in our clean water future. Ask questions about the status of the Long Term Control Plans affecting your most immediate waterways.

We’ll be there, calling for bigger investments in sewage and stormwater capture to comply with the Clean Water Act and human health standards, and shorter timelines to accomplishing these goals.

Will you join us in calling for a healthier future for our waterways and communities?

Register today to attend.
