2012-03-20 Barclays Arena/FCR egregious assault of residential neighborhood by generating drifting dense massive dust bowl from block 1129 rigs & OVERSIZED-LOAD trucks from Canada, earth movers, delivery trucks, dump trucks so dense at times you can’t see trucks in the area, with all the yard workers, why isn’t the area watered down?
New reporting procedure directive followed from 2012-03-15 District Cabinet Meeting to use 620 Atlantic Ave for 311 calls ‘reporting location’ for community grievances of daily violations produced by Barclays Arena, FCR, ESDC, LIRR. 311 operators said that system was down & they would make a paper report.
311 REPORT #: XE03-20-12M-2264-01
These especially egregious events were filmed over an 9 hour time period – the entire 15 gigs of video footage will be posted.
All dust generated 2012-03-20 drifted into the surrounding residential neighborhood.The wind normally blows east to west like today & the closest air monitor is @ Pacific St & Vanderbilt Ave ½ block east of dust generation so how accurate is the data? The better location for any monitoring device would be Dean St & Carlton Ave or Pacific St & Carlton Ave, the next closest air monitor is @ mid 6th Ave bridge rail yard side and just inside the Barclays Arena gate @ 6th Ave & Pacific St.
Note: while you are watching, most ALL vehicles traveling on closed Pacific St generate dust from excessive speeding
