ConEd Reacts Quickly to Bronx River Oil Spill, But Concerns Linger

In the days before Thanksgiving, dozens of workers in hard hats and orange and yellow vests trudged along the banks of the Bronx River sopping and scooping up the last remnants of a Nov. 4 oil spill from a Consolidated Edison substation in Yonkers.

Conservation experts heralded Con Edison's quick and diligent response but wouldn’t go so far as to give the river’s ecosystem a clean bill of health.

“We're watching very closely for harm to wildlife,” said Linda Cox, who heads the Bronx River Alliance, a non-profit that works to restore and protect the river. “Our concern is more about whether there would be more subtle, longer-term effects.”
