At the June 19 Newtown Creek Technical CAG meeting, EPA made the Draft Executive Summary for the Newtown Creek 2019 Draft Remedial Investigation Report available to be posted.
The Executive Summary (ES) for the Newtown Creek 2019 Draft Remedial Investigation (RI) Report drafted by the Newtown Creek Group (NCG) is available below. This draft of the report is currently under review by EPA, and EPA stakeholders, and has not been approved. EPA is not in agreement with all statements made in the Executive Summary. For example, the language in the ES makes statements regarding background values, NAPL distribution in the creek, and discharges to the creek that EPA expects to comment on. The final version of the RI report will reflect EPA comments, discussions with stakeholders and technical discussions with the PRPs.The draft report is available, along with the CAG meeting presentations, here: https://newtowncreekcag.wordpress.com/presentation-slides/
