January 30 – Sewage Treatment Plant 137th-145th

Riverbank State Park is built on top of the North River Wastewater Treatment Plant which can handle up to 340 million gallons of wastewater a day in wet weather.  Every day DEP boats including the Red Hook arrive to load sludge into their holds to take to a facility on Wards Island for further treatment.
