Oh crap… Updates

So Monday night after class, I trekked out into the rain… When I arrived at NCB-013 there was no sign that it was overflowing. The smell of sewage was in the air though as the rain stirred things up. After getting some photos of the river and holding pond, I heard a loud creaking sound. It was clear that the flood gates were opening. Moments later there was a torrent of water being released into Wallabout bay. The sound of the water rushing from the flood gates was quite incredible…

Here is what the outfall looks like after it gained some steam
