Please join the Newtown Creek Alliance and Randall Austin from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation for an engaging and informative workshop on oil spills. Mr. Austin heads the DEC’s Spill Response Program that actively investigates and brings enforcement to petroleum and chemical spills cases in NY Harbor. Whether you are an active user of the waterway or enjoy it from the shore is it very important for community members to be able to recognize various pollution types and properly report spills or unusual occurrences when they occur.
