Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway Goes Greener

Slide image 0

As reported today on NY 1, the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is undergoing some exciting changes. Planned investments in green infrastructure will prevent up to half a billion gallons of stormwater from entering the combined sewer system annually. This will contribute to a dramatic reduction in the release of raw sewage into the East River and New York Harbor during heavy storms. The plan also recommends approaches to protect Red Hook and Sunset Park from future coastal flooding.
