I am forwarding an email below from NYC H2O regarding scoping meetings for
US Army Corps of Engineers proposals for storm barriers.
These barriers may have a negative impact on water quality throughout New
York harbor, Jamaica Bay, and the Hudson River.
Please try to attend.

The US Army Corps of Engineers notice on this meeting is on website

From NYC H2O:

The Army Corps is fast tracking one of six off-shore storm barrier plans
without a thorough review of the environmental impacts of each alternative
and without meaningful public input and participation. Several of these
plans – specifically, the ones including giant in-water barriers throughout
New York Harbor – would threaten the very existence of the Hudson as a
living river.

If you live anywhere near the shorelines of New York City, New York Harbor,
northern New Jersey, western Connecticut or the Hudson up to Troy, your
community will be affected by this decision.

Please read more about the proposals
