LAST GASP: Brown Water?
A pal of mine called the Professor writes at 9:03 p.m.:
is your water over there running brown? Pinkish brown? It’s been nonstop here for the better part of an hour. Running it longer doesn’t make it better.
We called 311.
Talked to a few people on Eagle Street all reporting the same dark water. Somebody wondered if that dig on Nassau might be the cause.
Funny how this happens while the “Is Greenpoint Safe?” gathering is underway. And I heard they were having drink specials. I’d get something without brown liquor if was there.
Any questions? If anyone has the 411 on this rather unsavory development please share via comments or email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire. Thanks!
UPDATE, May 24, 2012: Lincoln Restler is presently taking this matter up with the DEP. In order for him to determine the scope of the problem, anyone who experienced brown water last night should contact Mr. Restler at: lincolnpr (at) gmail (dot) com.
UPDATE, May 24, 2012 12:00 p.m.: We have an answer!
