Under the Clean Water Act and State mandates, New York City is required to develop 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.

Join Riverkeeper and our partners at the SWIM Coalition at the first public meeting on the Citywide & East Rivers Open Waters Long Term Control Plan to improve water quality in New York-New Jersey Harbor. The Citywide & East River/Open Waters plan will encompass the Harlem River, Hudson River, Upper New York Bay, Lower New York Bay, East River, and the western portion of Long Island. This first meeting will be focused on the Harlem and Hudson Rivers.

Learn more about Long Term Control Plans on the SWIM Coalition website, and in a recent blog post on the November 15th Citywide MeetingLearn more about Riverkeeper’s work in New York City.
