The NYC Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Wastewater Treatment (BWT), treats 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater annually.

New York City’s wastewater is collected through an extensive grid of sewer pipes that stretch over 7,400 miles (11,900 km). The BWT operates 14 water pollution control plants, treating an average of 1.3 billion US gallons (4,900,000 m3) of wastewater a day. They also operate 96 wastewater pump stations, 8 dewatering facilities, and 490 sewer regulators.

Join us for a members-only tour of the Digester Eggs at the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. The tour will start with an overview of the wastewater treatment process—an essential part of protecting public health and NYC’s waterways. Following the presentation, visitors are invited to the observation deck, a glass-enclosed walkway built atop the state-of-the art Digester Eggs with views of the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens skylines.

All attendees are required to wear closed-toe, flat-soled shoes. NYC Department of Environmental Protection reserve the right to deny participation in the tour if improper footwear is worn.
