Speak up for Flushing Bay 9/30
Healthy communities depend on healthy waterways. Members of the public can speak out at a meeting about the future of Flushing Bay and Flushing Creek. This final public meeting at Oerter Recreation Center, 131-40 Fowler Ave., Flushing, Queens is your last chance to comment on long-term plans to reduce sewage outflows into New York City waterways. The plan falls short of the Creek’s needed reduction of CSOs and proposes to chlorinate wastewater without having studied the potential impacts to the ecosystem and people. Come out, speak up and demand that a comprehensive LTCP for Flushing Creek and Bay is developed.
