BROOKLYN, NEW YORK--JULY 14, 2011--The Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY, was designated a Superfund site in March 2010 and will takes years to clean. However, some have been using the polluted canal like members of the Gowanus Dredges, who volunteer their time to take students (like this group of summer camp students from Battery Park City in Manhattan). The Gowanus Dredgers want people to have an appreciation for the canal and to use this unique waterway in an environmentally friendly way. (Carolyn Cole/Los Angeles Times)
