Dear Valentine’s Day Tour Registrants
Conditions on the ground at Newtown Creek as of 5pm this evening appear to have improved and it looks as if the Valentine’s Day Digester Egg Tour will be able to take place tomorrow. If, for some reason, icing occurs overnight that is deemed hazardous and necessitates a tour cancelation—that information will be posted on the DEP website and the agency’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. Only if the tour is canceled will notification be posted, so please make sure to check the DEP website or social media before heading out tomorrow. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
