Dept of Health Study confirms no vapors from 50 Year Old Oil Spill.

As reported on News 12 Brooklyn yesterday, the NY Department of Health has completed its air sampling study in Greenpoint which concludes that there are no vapors being emitted from the 50 year old underground oil spill located in the eastern industrial section of Greenpoint near the East Williamsburg industrial park. Although Exxon is still responsible for continuing the clean up along the Newtown Creek these findings do put into question the lawsuits filed against the oil company for the property damage. Basil Seggos, chief investigator of Riverkeepers acknowledged that the studies findings were very good news for the residents of Greenpoint, but still looks forward to the day when Newtown Creek will be clean and reclaimed for the neighboring communities.Click picture at left to see video.
