Recovering from Sandy: Boat Salvage Begins at E.B. Forsythe Refuge
Hurricane Sandy left behind a 22-mile long debris field in the marshes at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge near Atlantic City, N.J. The powerful storm surge left behind more than 100 boats carrying thousands of gallons of fuel, oil and propane tanks, roofs, lumber and many other potentially hazardous materials. Some boats have been retrieved; however, others remain stranded in hard to reach areas. A team of 20 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service specialists is on site evaluating the level of contamination on the refuge.
