CFMC Meeting May 27

   Father Richard Gorman the new Chair of the Croton Filtration Monitoring Committee has scheduled a monthly meeting of the CFMC for Tuesday night May 27th at 7:00pm in the basement of the Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 160 Van Cortlandt Park South, across from Van Cortlandt Park by the Major Deegan Highway.  

  Fr Gorman has asked DEP to present "Water for the Future" as well as the upcoming scope, costs, and schedule for construction projects at Jerome Park Reservoir(JPR) beyond the JPR Croton Filter Project. 

  As of now the DEP has been invited and has not confirmed attendance. At last months CFMC meeting scheduled by Father Gormen in attendance were representatives from the Parks Department, but DEP did not show up.

  A note of interest is that at the Community Board 8 Environmental and Sanitation Committee meeting there was a power point presentation about the rehabilitation of Gate Houses 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7 at the Jerome Park Reservoir by the DEP with Shane Ojar the Community Outreach Director for DEP answering some of the questions with "That is a matter for the CFMC meetings not this presentation". Mr. Ojar is the representative from DEP to the CFMC meetings.

  1. The plan that DEP presented for their rehabilition of the Gate Houses at the Jerome Park Reservoir is to demolish Gate House No.2, 3 & 6 and not restore them, thus destroying the historical essences of the reservoir. SHPO has already approved the demolishion and CB8 did not raised any concens about it at the meeting on May 21.
