Gowanus Canal Pollution Issues

The Gowanus Canal is one of the most polluted bodies of water in New York City.
At the beginning of the Gowanus Canal, which is the Flushing Tunnel,
there is a boom blocking waste and floatables from entering the canal. This tunnel was built to help flush the canal into the Upper New York Bay as result of horrible smell the stagnent water produced.
