Trash and debris stranded by Sandy along Dutch Kill and Newtown Creek 11/2

During high tide during Sandy a great deal of trash was blown by SE wind into fence along the west side of the entrance to Dutch Kill off Newtown Creek (across from “Nature Walk”). All this material remains stranded above wall but will become re-suspended at next extreme high tide – perhaps during Northeaster coming tomorrow, Wednesday 11/7.

A similar condition exists along fence on the Exxon property on south side of Newtown Creek immediately east of the Greenpoint Av Bridge

At the entrance to the English Kill (an arm of Newtown Creek) there is a section along west side where a number of drums and other debris have been blown ashore, including a dumpster and several heating oil tanks.
