Workers cleaning out one of New York City’s dirtiest canals have uncovered historic relics covered in toxic gunk

Gowanus Canal relicMaria Audin

  • The Gowanus Canal, one of the most polluted bodies of water in the country, is filled with toxic sewage, bacteria, and heavy metals.
  • The EPA has created a plan for cleaning up the canal, starting with a pilot study in Brooklyn’s Fourth Street Turning Basin.
  • Workers cleaning the turning basin recently found relics that go decades back, including a World War II-era “crash boat” and large wooden textile spools from the early 1900s.

The Gowanus Canal is one of the dirtiest bodies of water in the United States.

The canal has become more and more polluted by runoff and dumping over the past few decades. Raw sewage tanks overflow into it, giant clumps of bacteria have been found at the bottom of the canal, and officials have detected amounts of heavy metals — like arsenic — that are 60 times higher than healthy exposure levels.

The EPA has committed to cleaning the canal in a project that’s expected to cost more than $500 million. During the the cleanup, workers recently discovered several relics that go back to Brooklyn’s industrial past, including a “crash boat” from World War II, wagon wheels, and large wooden textile spools.

The relics were found during a pilot study underway in the Fourth Street Turning Basin, a 1.8-mile section of the Gowanus. Contractors will soon move on to cleaning up the rest of the canal.

The 63-foot-long crash boat is the largest discovery. Built in Miami during World War II, the boat was used to rescue pilots from downed airplanes, according to the New York Post. Since then, the boat has served as a Fire Island Ferry, a houseboat in the Bronx, and a floating art space in Brooklyn. It was transformed into an LGBT party boat after a group purchased it in 2006, but it is unclear how the boat later ended up at the bottom of the canal.

Researchers wrote in a report to the EPA that the boat does not have much historical value as a relic because it has undergone several renovations over the past seven decades.

Workers have also found large spools and skeins that seem to have come from Zobel Color Works, an early 20th-century textile and dye manufacturer, according to the Post.

Archaeologists hired to examine the relics say cleaning the objects can be challenging.

Archaeologist Jonathan Bream from Archaeology Historic Resource Services has to wear a Tyvek suit and protective gear as he washes the sewage off the discoveries.

“When this stuff first comes out, it kind of has a … fecal-petroleum-musty smell that you have to have a good stomach to be around,” Bream told the Post. “The grossest part of it … is when something accidentally falls in the drink and splashes you, because you’re not expecting it.”

Bream said a ceramic kettle was the lone personal object discovered in the turning basin.

The Fourth Street Turning Basin was built in the 1860s and 1870s, so researchers do not expect to find objects from the oldest parts of Brooklyn’s history there. But the Gowanus as a whole played an important role in the American Revolution — during the Battle of Brooklyn, an American regiment retreated across the former swamp after the British Army gained the upper hand — so it is possible the archaeologists will find Revolutionary War relics in other parts.

As the EPA finishes the turning basin pilot study, workers will put layers of sand, clay, and carbon-absorbing materials to form a clean bottom in that part of the canal. And Bream is working to figure out if any of the other discoveries have historical value; if they do, the EPA and New York City will need to determine what to do next.

The EPA will keep dredging the rest of the canal, capping it with sand and clay, and cement will be added to sediment that contains mobile liquid tar to keep the tar from moving. Full-scale dredging is expected to begin in 2020.

Nearly 650 people got sick after eating at Chipotle. Here’s what we know about the foodborne illness they caught, and how to avoid it.

Chipotle Mobile Order 4Hollis Johnson/Business Insider

  • Nearly 650 people got sick after eating at a Chipotle in Powell, Ohio. Now we know why. 
  • The Delaware General Health District said stool samples of sick people tested positive for the bacteria Clostridium perfringens.
  • C. perfringens is pretty easily avoided, if food is kept at appropriate storage temperatures.

The mystery’s largely been solved at a Chipotle restaurant in Powell, Ohio.

Nearly 650 people got violently ill with severe stomach cramps and diarrhea after eating there, as Business Insider reported earlier.

The outbreak started around July 26, and continued for several days, but health officials were initially not sure what happened. After testing some stool samples of the sickened customers, they’ve found a culprit: a bacteria called Clostridium perfringens was at work. 

Like E. coli, C. perfringens hangs out naturally in the guts of animals and people, and is often in raw meat.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it is one of the most common types of food poisoning. It  sickens nearly a million people in the country every year with diarrhea and cramps that usually last for less than a day. 

Problems can arise with C. perfringens when food is kept warm for a while before it’s served.

The trouble is easily avoided if workers are trained to keep food at safe storage and serving temperatures. For example, roasts of beef and poultry should be stored above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, or below 40 degrees, the CDC says. Meat should be served up hot, not lukewarm.

In response to the outbreak, Chipotle CEO Brian Niccol said the company’s going to work on that. 

“Chipotle Field Leadership will be retraining all restaurant employees nationwide beginning next week on food safety and wellness protocols,” Chipotle CEO Brian Niccol said in response to the outbreak news.

This isn’t the first time Chipotle’s come under fire for questionable food handling practices. The company was plagued by a string of food poisoning outbreaks in 2015, and has continued to have issues since. More recently, the company closed down a Virginia store in 2017 after several people got sick there. At the time, food safety advocate and attorney Bill Marler told Business Insider that Chipotle may not actually be any worse at food safety than other restaurants; it’s just the one company that gets caught.

“The vast majority of foodborne illnesses are never linked to anything,” Marler said. “Most people think the thing that made them sick was the last thing they ate — which is mostly wrong.”

The best way to treat C. perfringens is with lots of fluids and rest. The more surefire way to prevent this nuisance illness is by making sure your food’s been properly cooked, stored, and handled before you put it in your mouth. 

Physician Family Day to Launch August 25

Wednesday August 15 th 2018

SEVERNA PARK, Md., Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The AMA Alliance, in conjunction with the American Medical Association (AMA), announced August 25 as Physician Family Day, a national day of celebration and recognition of our dedicated physicians and their families. On this day, physicians and their families will gather in local groups or as individual families with the goal of providing opportunities for re-engagement and connection. Suggested activities for local groups include potlucks, picnics, restaurant dinners, athletic events, pool parties and more.

Physicians provide continuous quality health care, and ensure the dignity of each patient,  often without regard for their personal needs, sacrificing family time. Physician Family Day highlights the recognition that self-care is a necessary part of optimizing care for patients.

Event chair, Michael Kelly, of Tampa, Fla., said, “Physician Family Day will help physicians and their families forge new friendships, connections, and support systems.”

AMA Alliance President Cami Pond of Ft. Wayne, Ind., sees this first annual event as a way to counter physician burnout. According to Pond, “We have designated a national Physician Family Day, where our medical families make spending meaningful time together a priority, bringing awareness to the pressures we are all under. As the spouse of a physician, I can attest to the emotional healing power of relaxing time with family, friends, and colleagues.”

The AMA Alliance has more than 2,300 members nationally in 34 states and plus more than 100 local affiliates.  Membership is open to all spouses/partners of physicians. For more information, visit http://amaalliance.org.
