Newtown Creek, a federally designated superfund site that receives over a billion gallons of untreated sewage discharge, is slowly recovering from over 100 years of industrial pollution and neglect. This bike tour will visit a number of key remediation and contaminated sites around the Creek, such as the Greenpoint Oil Spill (the country’s largest underground oil spill). Participants will learn from the Newtown Creek Alliance staff details about the Superfund investigation and cleanup as well as the City’s long term plans to reduce sewage overflow.
