Tonight the EPA will host a meeting for Red Hook residents concerned about the EPA’s proposal to construct a facility in Red Hook that decontaminates the material dredged from the Gowanus Canal Superfund site and uses it as landfill. You can read lots of details about the proposal over at the Red Hook Star Revue. The proposed “contaminated disposal facility” would go in the Gowanus Bay Terminal. There the Gowanus soil would be coalesced into a solid mixture of sand, dredge and cement to create a landfill. According to the Revue, “the plan creates developable land for the GBX’s owner, John Quadrozzi, Jr. The land’s use would ultimately be the decision of Quadrozzi alone.” Quadrozzi first proposed this in the fall, and at that point the EPA’s involvement was uncertain. The plan is now in its public comment period, which lasts until April 27th. The public meeting on the matter will be held tonight at 6:30 pm in PS 15 on Sullivan Street (between Van Brunt & Richards).
