Oh joy, the federal government is on the case, and EPA no less, this sound as promissing as the trade center clean-up.

Obviously there are a lot of questions, and I'm looking forward to the information session.

But a cleanup would be a very good thing, long term, for the Gowanus. And the additional scrutiny wouldn't hurt either.
