National Grid to pay up for Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal Superfund Site cleanup

May 31, 2018

As part of a settlement with the EPA, National Grid will pay $100M for cleanup of the Gowanus Canal Superfund site in Brooklyn, New York. National Grid, which provides natural gas and electricity for New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, has been identified by the EPA as a potentially responsible party with regard to the contamination there; additional PRPs include the City of New York, and other private and federal government entities. The settlement funds will “support cleanup work near the head of the Gowanus Canal, including the cleanup and restoration of Thomas Greene Park, as well as the Douglass and DeGraw Pool.”
