A Public Service Announcement by Edward the Egret
Edward the Egret tells the "humans" in his neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn not to flush the toilet during rainstorm events. English Kills and Newtown Creek’s combined sewer overflows empty into the waterway, even during light rains, which then contaminates the creek. We "humans" have now become the major source of pollution for this Superfund site.
This video was created by Henry G. Sanchez, the founder of the ENGLISH KILLS PROJECT, a socially engaged, bio-art project about the English Kills tributary of Newtown Creek, a Superfund site here in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
