Making A Difference in the South Bronx with Pollution Initiatives
July 26, 2017

In 2010, NYC-EJA launched our Waterfront Justice Project, New York City’s first citywide community-based resiliency campaign.  When the City of New York initiated its overhaul of the Comprehensive Waterfront Plan (Vision 2020) in 2010, NYC-EJA began our advocacy campaign to convince the Bloomberg Administration to reform waterfront designations called Significant Maritime Industrial Areas, or SMIA’s.

NYC-EJA is also working in partnership with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS-DEC) and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) NYS Pollution Prevention Institute on the EPA-funded “NYC Industrial Waterfront Communities Pollution Prevention, Toxics Reduction, and Resiliency Planning” project in the South Bronx Significant Maritime and Industrial Area (SMIA).
