We received photos from an aerial photographer of a large sheen from Nyack south through the TZ Bridge. We found the cause to be a crane barge working in Nyack which had lost its hydraulic fluid. We reported to DEC Spills which handled the case. No fines because there was no negligence, no recovery of spilled product. And so it goes, the river goes on, quietly taking the punches, waiting for us to stop.
