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 
 and attend:
Monday, July 9, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., NYC: Borough of Manhattan Community Center 
in Tribeca, enter at 199 Chambers St, Manhattan 
Tuesday, July 10, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., Newark: Rutgers University-Newark Campus, 
Paul Robeson Campus Center, 2nd floor, Essex Room, 350 Martin Luther King Jr. 
Boulevard, Newark, N.J.
Wednesday, July 11, 6 p.m., Poughkeepsie: Hudson Valley Community Center, 110 
Grand Avenue, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
