OHNY Tours of Greenpoint Oil Spill Remediation Project


On October 11th, ExxonMobil and Roux Associates opened the gates at 400 Kingsland Avenue to give a behind the scenes tour of the Greenpoint Oil Spill Remediation Project. As part of Open House NY, NCA helped to coordinate the event and provide some information to participants about the larger environmental issues surrounding Newtown Creek. Despite some chilly rain in the morning, the tours were a great success – with many local residents getting a first hand understanding of the background of the spill and how the team is safely recovering millions of gallons of petroleum underground. Participants also got a special post-tour look inside the neighboring Broadway Stages building and the set of TV show Madame Secretary. Thanks to Kevin Thompson and Roux for running this very informative tour – we look forward to offering more to the community going forward.
