Well, they’ve see what comes out of you, so why not meet the person behind the spit, spew and good:
New York City’s 14 wastewater treatment plants together treat 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater daily. Our system combines sanitary flow, created each time a New Yorker turns on a tap, runs a washing machine or flushes a toilet, and runoff that enters our sewers whenever it rains or snows.
But what of the Digester Eggs?
The Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant is home to eight futuristic stainless steel-clad digesters known as the Digester Eggs. The Digester Eggs play a critical role in wastewater treatment as they process as many as 1.5 million gallons of sludge (the organic material removed from sewage) each day. Located in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, the Newtown Creek facility is the largest of New York City’s 14 treatment plants and has the capacity to treat more than 300 million gallons of wastewater daily.
