Taking a walk on this beautiful morning at 9:15am with the dog, I spotted pollution today in Sligo Creek that appears to be a repeat of what was reported by another concerned citizen July 24. The pollution was emptying into the Creek from the storm drain at Schuyler and Sligo Creek Parkway. The pollution looked about the same – maybe a bit worse (see July 24 picture below – I unfortunately didn’t have a camera with me today) and appears to be caused by the same thing (construction, with earth moving equipment, about 100 yards upstream/uphill on Schuyler).
I’ve reported to DEP via Water WatchDog’s email relay and asked whether the pollution can be stopped and those responsible fined.
If anyone has additional information (including, seeing the same problem on days other than July 24 and today), please send an email to the Water WatchDog email: ReportSligoPollution at fosc.org.
