Project Description

DEP is proposing to remove accumulated combined sewer overflow (CSO) sediment from the upper portion of Hendrix Street Canal to provide odor abatement for the surrounding community in accordance with the CSO Consent Order with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). The Hendrix Street Canal Interim Dredging Project is proposed for the uppermost 1,400 feet of the canal, a tributary of Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, New York. This action would remove approximately 20,000 cubic yards of accumulated CSO sediment by hydraulic dredging.
