Oil spill from New Rochelle apartments pollute Titus Mill PondPosted: Updated:
An oil spill in New Rochelle's Titus Mill Pond has residents concerned about its potential impact on area wildlife.
The body of water sits below the apartment building at 300 Pelham Road. Apparently, an oil tank that heats the apartments spilled into the water.
Crews from Northeast Environmental have begun cleaning up the oil, setting up barriers and foam to prevent oil from spreading.
News 12 called the building's management company and the building's superintendent, but received no call back.
The pond, which connects to the Long Island Sound, is home to many kinds of wildlife, such as fish and birds.
It's not yet clear how the spill occurred.
