The Old American Can Factory Gallery at 232 Third Street (at Third Avenue) is hosting an opening tonight in which the winning entries from Gowanus by Design’s Water_Works competition will be on display. The competition’s goal was to field proposals for the Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) retention facility that will occupy the current site of the Douglas Degraw pool; the pool will likely have to be razed during the EPA’s cleanup of canal contamination, although it will eventually be rebuilt with the CSO retention facility underneath it.

The opening runs from 6:30-9pm tonight. Over 250 people entered, and the nine winning proposals will be on display. More info here.
