Gowanus Oil Slick Update

Oil on Gowanus TwoSo, about all that oil on the surface of the Gowanus, a reader leaves the following comment on yesterday's post:
That oil depot just north of Union St has applied under our New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program--a program that has us tax payers covering up to 25% of the cost of all the reconstruction on the brownfield site. But under this program, the oil depot guys have acknowledged that they participated in causing the contimination and there for are responsible for cleanup of all such contiminants beyond their site boarder. This cleanup is all going to be tricky given the water forces keep moving this stuff around--inland and through the estuary.
