Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper has invited Buffalo residents and business owners to come advocate for Green Infrastructure solutions to the City's combined sewer problem. The Buffalo Sewer Authority (BSA) has proposed a Draft Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) for the reduction of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) associated with the City’s Sewer System. CSOs occur when precipitation-related flows overwhelm the sewer system causing untreated sewage to be discharged into area waterways. The BSA is conducting its third round of community outreach meetings at various locations throughout the City of Buffalo to seek input on its proposed LTCP. This issue impacts all residents and businesses in the City of Buffalo. All are encouraged to attend. Community meetings will be held as follows:
- Tuesday, May 15 at 6 PM at Pratt Willert Community Center 422 Pratt Street, Buffalo, NY 14204
- Wednesday, May 16 at 6 PM at Seneca Babcock Community Center, 1168 Seneca Street, Buffalo, NY 14210
- Thursday, May 17 at 6 PM at North Buffalo Community Center, 203 Sanders Road, Buffalo, NY 14216
