King Arthur had a sister called Morgan le Fay, who was skilled in magic of all sorts, and hated her brother because he had slain in battle a Knight whom she loved.
When Arthur was gone, Morgan le Fay turned herself and her horses and her men back into their former shapes, and said, "Now, Sirs, we may go where we will." And she departed into the country of Gore, and made her towns and castles stronger than before, for she feared King Arthur greatly.

 NJAS: Oil Spill on the Arthur Kill   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
The most serious is the attitude that the Kill and, by extension, other urban waters (like Raritan Bay, the Hudson, and the Hackensack Meadowlands) are degraded, without natural resource value, and are merely sinks into which we deposit our by-products of consumption, or reservoirs for accidents waiting to happen.
Response time is the critical factor in controlling environmental damage, and in the Arthur Kill that means two things have to be done quickly and simultaneously: contain the spill at the source, and in case that doesn't work, block off the creek entrances with booms, so that the damage doesn't extend to the shallows.
Since the Arthur Kill has a high density of industries and pipelines, it has to be a priority area for storage of containment equipment in anticipation of accidents.
