Newtown Creek has 23 Combined Sewer Overflow outfalls along its shores. Some of them are very large, some of them are relatively inactive, some of them are visible and accessible and others are hidden under bridges, behind private lots or under the water line. Members of the S.W.I.M. Coalition and Newtown Creek Alliance are doing their darnedest to locate them all and photograph the conditions at each outfall, especially during wet weather. We know its gross, but somebody's gotta look. If you would like to contribute to this map in a coordinated fashion, please drop us a line through our profile here or at email@example.com
When sewage loads exceed the capacity of the City's sewage treatment facilities urine, feces, trash, petroleum products and other nasties are expelled, untreated, into New York Harbor via 494 combined sewer overflow outfalls aka CSOs. Just 15 of these 494 outfalls, identified as Tier 1, are responsible for spurting out over half the City's raw sewage. A sewage overflow can be triggered by as little as a tenth of an inch of rain, which essentially means that every time it rains, your toilet flushes directly into New York Harbor. In New York City a CSO event occurs once a week on average. CSOs are the single largest impairment to the quality of New York City's waters.
