Many of the East Coast's waste treatment plants failed during Superstorm Sandy, causing them to release thousands of gallons of raw sewage into the area's waterways. This mixed with other pollutants--like more than 330,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled near Arthur Kill, the waterway that separates New Jersey from Staten Island. In this video report Democracy Now! teams up with the watchdog group Riverkeeper to tour New York City's industrial waterfront four day after the storm. They find mixed results from water samples taken along the way. The piece is produced by Democracy Now!'s Renée Feltz and Sam Alcoff, and filmmaker Sara Kinney.
