NOAA project kick-off


Three of my community-based partner organizations in the Bronx have received a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. A week ago youth and educators from YMPJ, The Point CDC, and Phipps CDC conducted a kick-off meeting, where YMPJ students have discussed the issue of combined sewer overflows (CSO), and how they mitigate this problem by converting impervious areas in inner city into rain gardens and green roofs. This spring/summer each of these three organizations will build new green spaces that will collect runoff water to prevent flooding/pollution of the Bronx River.
