The Bronx Council for Environmental Quality is pleased to invite you to the 9th Water Conference at its Annual Membership Meeting on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 from 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm at Manhattan College, Leo Engineering Building, 3825 Corlear Avenue @ West 238th Street, Bronx, NY (#1 train or Bx9 to W238th Street).

The Harlem River Working Group formed to work to restore, reconnect, recreate; and reinvigorate in-the-water recreational, health and commercial activities. Our goal is to create a permanent structure, something like the Bronx River Alliance, for the Harlem River.

This year’s conference will focus on “Examining Harlem River Water Quality:  Imputs, Effects and Solutions”:

  • Map places of interest along the river’s edge
  • Advocate for sensitive area status for the Harlem and Bronx Rivers
  • Review the river’s past
  • Examine the river’s future
  • Discuss the State of the Sewers.

Breakout groups will organize around interactive google mapping, future urban plans in CB 7; and grassroots designed Public Participation Plans for Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and Stormwater.  Refreshments will be served. The public is invited to attend this free event.

Sponsors include:  Borough President Ruben Diaz; New York City Soil and Water Conservation District; Partnerships for Parks, Con Edison, Manhattan College, National Parks Service, Friends of Brook Park, Urban Divers Ecology Center and Highbridge Community Life Center.
