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.

Marine Transfer Stations - NYC by OWN

A single barge can carry as much garbage as twenty-eight tractor trailer trucks. By building marine transfer stations and barging New York City's garbage, the City can reduce waste related truck traffic in the City by more than 3 million miles annually. Cutting diesel powered truck traffic will improve air quality across the city, cut carbon emissions, reduce traffic congestion, trim maintenance costs for our roads and bridges, and improve quality of life.

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.

Waste Transfer Stations - NYC by OWN

The South Bronx and the neighborhoods surrounding Newtown Creek host a combined 32 waste transfer stations (WTS). Collectively, these WTS handle over 60% of the 12 million tons of waste moving through WTS in NYC annually. Because WTS are not evenly distributed throughout the City and because most WTS use tractor-trailers for export, disposing of NYC's waste generates unnecessary truck traffic and pollution. By utilizing marine and rail transfer stations in closer proximity to collection vehicle routes, the City can alleviate waste related environmental impacts for the whole City.
