August 2017: there was a major fish kill in Flushing Creek and Flushing Bay, where thousands of menhaden washed up on the shores. This happened after a week of rain storms, and water quality was certainly suffering from CSOs. However, the NYC Department of Environmental Protection insists it was not pollution that killed the fish. 

2016: two barges were abandoned in Flushing Bay, leaving behind chunks of styrofoam that ended up on the shorelines and broke into smaller and smaller pieces, making it hard to remove. Working closely with Riverkeeper and Congressman Crowley, the Army Corps of Engineers finally removed the barges.
