Progress Update, Week of September 11th, 2023

During the week of September 11, the Gowanus Remediation Team (GRT) continued the RTA 1 Capping Operation. Capping material placement was completed using the low velocity spreader barge. The low velocity spreader barge was demobilized.

Capping material placement will continue using an excavator. This week the excavator was used to place material between Butler Street and Union Street, and around the Union Street Bridge abutments.

Photos of construction activities are provided below.
