Winter is Still Very Present in the Big Apple

Winter is Still Very Present in the Big Apple

A series of recent manhole fires in the heart of Manhattan forced the evacuation of several theaters and was a stark reminder that the subway is not the only creaky infrastructure beneath the streets of New York City. New York City has one of the oldest and largest infrastructures in the world, including some areas more than centuries old.

Climate Change Could New York’s Sewer System Be Contributing to this Issue

Climate Change Could New York’s Sewer System Be Contributing to this Issue

In 2018, New Yorkers experienced an extremely rainy year. The rain washed pet waste, plastic utensils and other street grime into an aging sewer system that sometimes can’t handle it.

Whenever it rains heavily, the surge of stormwater forces the sewers to hit maximum capacity, causing wastewater to flow from the 100-year-old system into nearby rivers. A 100-year-old sewer system can barely manage light flow in certain places. The city is working on various ways to improve water quality but those efforts

This is a particular concern downtown, where water mains,
