On the Banks of the Gowanus, Bills

latest development in the epic saga of the Gowanus Canal is that the U.S. Navy and the city could be among the groups who'll get stuck with the bill when cleanup is done, the Daily News reports. The Environmental Protection Agency sent notices to each entity last week, telling them that they could be responsible for cleanup costs if the canal gets a Superfund designation because they have owned or operated nearby facilities. The EPA still has more sampling to do before it decides whether the Gowanus gets a Superfund label, but in the meantime, Archpaper reminds us that Mayor Bloomberg has been none too eager for a Superfund designation.
