Gowanus Canal Forum, December 6th

Mark your calendars - free Thursday nights in holiday season are not easy to come by.

Via the Gowanus Lounge, the meeting will take place Thursday, December 6th.
The meeting will take place from 6PM-8PM at the Belorusian Chruch at Atlantic Avenue and Bond Street.

A lot of questions need to be answered about the impacts of development on pollution in the Canal, and on the impacts of flooding.

Think about what happens to the Gowanus floodplain during a major hurricane or nor'easter. Now, what would happen if it were a dense residential enclave? What impact can we expect to see on the Canal due to global warming? And what is the city going to do about our (NYC's) continuous violation of federal water quality standards?
