“We look forward to continuing this momentum and expanding our programs into 2017. It will also prove to be a crucial year for advancing the Superfund and Long Term Control Plan cleanups, where NCA has provided a leading and impactful voice. As we look forward to the coming year, we invite supporters of NCA’s mission to Restore, Reveal and Revitalize Newtown Creek to consider making an end-of-year donation to further our efforts,” the organization stated.
