The giant onion

I think this is the waste treatment plant. It didn't really have a sign and it looks like it's under contruction still, but it's within the Newtown Creek facility and I think I remember reading that this was being built. It's pretty surreal to look at in the whole.

Yes, those giant onions are the digesters in the Newtown Creeek Water Pollution Control Plant. The plant is still in the process of being upgraded and will remain so, until after 2012.

For those that are intereseted DEP meets with the Newtown Creek Monitoring Committee once per month regarding the upgrade. The meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is scheduled for February 8, 2007 ( Thursday ) at 6:30 p.m. at 329 Greenpoint Ave in Greenpoint Brooklyn. The entrance is located on Greenpoint Ave between Kingsland and Provost Sts. When you enter you bear to the left toward the building at the end ( near Provost St ) & enter at the second door from the last.
