Attorney General vs. Newtown Creek Polluters by Newtown Creek Alliance

In February 2007, The Attorney General's Office, with a newly elected Andrew Cuomo at the helm, filed a notice of intent to sue against ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, Keyspan (National Grid) and Phelps Dodge (Freeport-McMoran Copper & Gold) for violating the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act by creating an imminent and substantial endangerment to health and the environment in Newtown Creek and portions of the adjacent shoreline.

Brownfield Cleanup Program - NYC by HabitatMap

A brownfield is a property whose redevelopment is complicated by potential contamination. All the properties detailed on this map are/were part of the NYS Dept of Environmental Conservation Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) or its predecessor, the Voluntary Cleanup Program. The BCP was designed to incentivize the redevelopment of brownfields by offering tax credits and liability waivers to developers.

EJ Peaker Power Plants - NYC by ssbx

This map details all the peaker power plants located within a 1/2 mile radius of an environmental justice community (as defined by NYSDEC). "Peaker" is a designation given to power plants that are only intended to operate on high electrical demand days when the generating capacity of base load plants is strained, like on hot summer days. Peaker plants often emit more pollution per unit of energy produced than base load plants. All of the peaking units shown in this map operate without post-combustion pollution controls.

Meeker Ave. Contaminant Plumes by Newtown Creek Alliance

The NY State Dept. of Environmental Conservation has identified several large plumes of chlorinated solvents (TCE & PCE) in the soils and groundwater beneath Greenpoint and East Williamsburg. These plumes are collectively referred to by DEC as the "Meeker Ave. Plume". The plumes are the result of decades of dumping and irresponsible manufacturing practices by historic and contemporary dry cleaning, dyeing, and metalworking businesses. For more information visit the Newtown Creek Alliance website. For a pdf version of the map with more detail click here.

Sewagesheds - NYC by HabitatMap

Each of the City's 14 sewage treatment facilities services a specific area of the city.  These areas are known as sewagesheds.  By identifying which sewageshed you live in, you can determine where your toilet flushes to.

State Superfund Sites - Newtown Creek by Newtown Creek Alliance

The New York State Superfund Program identifies, investigates, and remediates hazardous waste sites. In most cases, the parties responsible for the pollution pay for the cleanup and carry out the required work. However, about a third of the time the State must pay the costs of cleanup using money from the 1986 Environmental Quality Bond Act.
