**Here is a letter to the EPA from a life long resident of Carroll Gardens and a CORD Co-Founder to the EPA Rita Miller:
I have served on the CAG since its inception representing CoRD, an organization I co-founded several years ago. I am also a member of FROGG, the larger South Brooklyn Coalition and the 2nd Place Community Transit Garden.
Other than the two residential properties I own on Second Place, I have no other holdings or business dealings in the community. I am, however very interested in the fate and future of the Canal.
---a clean and capped Canal bottom, a halt to toxic compound seepage into the water from the surrounding uplands and a solution that addresses, at their source, future chemical recontamination via the CSOs with a bonus for us to boot--since the proposed retention tank solution will alleviate the now constant unhealthy pathogen laden pollution of the canal as well.
Those tanks are the key to satisfying the community's and the CAG's well documented longing for the elimination of CSO discharges. And the proposed locations couldn't possibly be more thoughtful or logical.
