Meanwhile, 'Toxic Dust' Blowing Around at LIC's Queens West?

New, 12 comments

That stuff seen blowing around with vigor in the YouTube vid? According to liQcity it's "toxic dust" on part of the big development site that Rockrose is remediating:

That particular site used to host a refinery, and like much of LIC, the soil is extremely toxic. So the question of the morning is: should that dirt be blowing around hither thither?...There’s a business idea for LIC entreprenuers: respirators and other toxic dust survival gear.
There is always opportunity in every challenge, even the possibly toxic ones.
