Save the Date for the next GWAPP Environmental forums – Wed March 2 & Wed Apr 13

by GWAPP on

We gathered back in October to discuss the history of pollution in our Greenpoint neighborhood. Now we will gather to learn more about the ins & outs of the clean-up process.
Wed March 2 –  Superfund Seminar – Polish Slavic Center – 176 Java St. – 630-830pm

Greenpoint has many sites that have been formally declared “polluted”. But who is responsible for that clean-up and how does that process proceed? Join the discussion as we review the variety of agencies and programs that are cleaning up our community. From Federal Superfund to State Brownfields and City clean-ups, we will learn all about the phases of testing and community input that lead to a remediation. 

Wed April 13 – Remediation Seminar – Polish Slavic Center – 176 Java St.- 630-830pm

What is “clean”? What does remediation entail? We have discussed the trail of pollution & the agencies dedicated to cleaning up the mess. But what does clean mean? Join the discussion of remediation plans and strategies that are employed across the nation, as we dive into the many ways to clean up our community.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page for announcement of guest speakers and more!
