From the Daily News:
Federal officials are considering adding Greenpoint's polluted Newtown Creek to the Superfund list, Brooklyn News has learned.
Environmental Protection officials in Washington began tests on the creek in January and finished about two weeks ago after state officials asked for the creek to be added to the list.
Newtown Creek was apparently tested around the same time as the Gowanus Canal - which federal officials announced last week they want to add to the Superfund list.
