During the week of January 9, the Gowanus Remediation Team (GRT) began mobilization for the RTA 1 Capping Operation. The Capping Operation will place a layer of new material along the bed of the canal within RTA 1. Capping is expected to continue through Spring 2024.
This week the GRT began installing pipe sections along the canal that will be used to transport capping material from the staging area during the Capping Operation. A barge was mobilized in preparation for the initial capping demonstration.
