New York Superfund

This Oct. 24, 2012 photo shows old city pipes that bring New York City's overflow sewage and wastewater to New York's Newtown Creek, at an estimated rate of 1.5 billion gallons per year. During heavy rainstorms, when the city's waste treatment plants reach capacity, raw sewage and wet garbage spill into the creek thorough hundreds of pipes on its banks.(AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)
