Newtown Creek Alliance is calling attention to an air permit application for National Grid’s Greenpoint facility.

NCA says the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is currently accepting comments on the application.

The environmental group is concerned that if it’s approved, National Grid will be allowed to expand operations at the facility and create more harm for local residents and workers.

“The operations at this 100+ acre facility have poisoned our waters, land and air for over a century,” NCA writes in their newsletter. “DEC and National Grid need to address public health concerns and do right by the community.”

The No North Brooklyn Pipeline has created an online petition against the project here.
