Nine violations by trucks of the Amended Memorandum of Environmental Commitments, Barclays Center Truck Rules and Requirements and/or NYC law are documented today before noon

(Updated)

Nine violations by trucks of the Amended Memorandum of Environmental Commitments, Barclays Center Truck Rules and Requirements, and/or NYC law were documented before noon today.  The filer was stationary and only captured those incidents within the visual range of his/her location.  The times below are from the incident reports.

1).  5:50 am

A flatbed truck delivering steel idles under the windows of Newswalk's residences on Pacific Street between Carlton and 6th Avenues.  The Barclays Center truck rules require trucks to wait on Pacific Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt and advance under the guidance of a flagger at Carlton and Pacific Street.  They are not allowed to wait in this location.

The report states the truck idled for over an hour and that the driver ignored a request to move from a resident.  The photo below apparently shows an Atlantic Yards worker documenting the truck with a cell phone camera.

More trouble with a Casagrande drill when it releases what appears to be smoke

In the last two weeks, this website has received incident reports related to adverse impacts on air quality from mechanical demolition, loading of trucks without spraying, an uncovered pile -- one of a number -- on site, jackhammering of a retaining wall, idling trucks, and now again from the Casagrande drill.

The use of Casagrande drills have instigated complaints from nearby residents related to noise, vibrations and air quality.  After striking video documentation of dust spewing from the drill was sent to ESD in April, the drill was apparently modified.  In June, mud spewed from the drill injuring two pedestrians outside the construction site and damaging seven cars.

Today, one of the drills released what appears to be smoke into the air.  The two videos below were submitted with an incident report which identifies the incident as occurring at 9:23 this morning.
