Local group hopes to clean up Eastie brownfield

There's a story on the WBUR web site about a proposal to turn an East Boston brownfield along the Chelsea creek into wetland. The eight-acre site is owned by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, but members of the Chelsea Creek Action Group hope to tap funds made available as the result of a settlement after an Exxon-Mobil tanker spilled 15,000 gallons of fuel into the waterway four years ago. There are, however, quite a few hurdles in their path.
