To Attend:

Join Riverkeeper and our partners at the SWIM Coalition for the only city-wide meeting of the year discussing sewage and stormwater overflow (Combined Sewage Overflow-CSO) plans.

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.

This will be the only public meeting this year focusing on the citywide sewage control plan waterway advocates, community members, and groups from across the boroughs should be there to stand together to call for robust investment in our clean water future.

We’ll be there, asking for bigger investments in sewage and stormwater capture, 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.
