RED HOOK WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PLANT

Red-Hook-Water-Pollution-Control-Plant
Project Information

Built in 1987, the Red Hook Water Pollution Control Plant is just one of New York City’s fourteen pollution control centers that treats a combined 1.7 billion gallons of waste per day collected through the approximated 6,000 miles of underground sewage tunnels. Individually served by 140 miles of sanitation and storm sewers, the Red Hook plant treats an average of 45 million gallons of waste daily which, prior to the facility’s existence, caused a tremendous concern, because sewage tunnels lead directly to NYC waterways, dumping the millions of gallons of material into the city’s open water. Fortunately, sewage arriving at the facility today is removed of unsightly debris, pathogens, and oxygenated material before entering the atmosphere, improving overall conditions for aquatic wildlife and enhancing the aesthetics of New York’s waterways. final_design_forthcoming.png
