From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part III: A Message From El Puente
Filed under: 11211, 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
Today yours truly had the pleasure of bumping into a member of our local Community Board: a very nice fellow named Esteban Duran. He wanted to bring the following to my (and therefore your) attention. Greenpoint homeowners and business owners whose premises were flooded courtesy of Sandy please take note: this is a service you will undoubtedly find of interest. Mr. Duran writes:
Hey Heather! Good seeing you today. Here’s the blurb about the EPA:
“Do you live close to the Newtown Creek and had a flooded basement or home during Hurricane Sandy? The EPA is on standby to test your home or business for potential toxins brought in by contaminated water. Even if the water has receded, please let the El Puente Green Light District know and we can try to get a team out to test your home or business. Email greenlightdistrict (at) elpuente (dot) us or call Anusha at (347) 532-2809.
UPDATE, November 7, 2012: Anusha writes:
Just one update! We hear that only homes may be tested by the EPA at this point….
