Great Kills Park Community Involvement
Gateway wants your input!
Gateway is moving to clean up Great Kills Park from radioactive contamination as required by the federal "Superfund" law (or CERCLA). Community involvement is a necessary part of the process.
Citizens will have a number of opportunities to learn more about the project as well as review and comment upon proposed cleanup actions.
A public information session was held to a packed house at the Great Kills Park Environmental Field Station on October 27, 2011 to share with the community our plans for the upcoming investigation. Gateway thanks all who were able to come out and participate. If you were unable to come out, you can download a copy of the presentation here.
