"Slick of '76" Musical Gets Revival

This summer marks the 30th anniversary of the so-called "Slick of '76", a 300,000 gallon oil spill in the heart of the Thousand Islands. The thick crude coated the shoreline of the St. Lawrence Seaway, from Alexandria Bay to Massena. The Nepco 140 accident remains one of the largest inland oil spills in the U.S., and it mobilized communities along the river around the issue of pollution. Save the River, a non-profit environmental organization on the St. Lawrence, is co-producing a revival production of Slick of '76 - A Musical Catastrophe. It was first performed in 1986 to enliven public awareness of this historic event, as a reminder that future accidents are possible and the need for educating good stewards of the earth.
