Tell me about cleaning up a toxic creek. In this case, something like the Newtown Creek in NY, now a Superfund site. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/28/nyregion/28newtown.html What is the process? Is it dredged? Dammed and drained? Dust, noise, time? Please explain the engineering. If the waste has seeped laterally, and it has, does that mean extensive excavation? What is the impact on the surrounding properties? What happens to property values, how do banks look at this, now and looking to the future? Please explain from a Realtor's or developer's viewpoint.
