Past - The Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant originally existed as a smaller plant, taking up less than 20 acres of land, and using paper-based outputs for graphs. The treatment plant's system did well to clean wastewater, and helped the city sustain its clean waters, making for a better city.

Present - The treatment plant today cleans hundreds of millions of gallons of wastewater. The biggest wastewater treatment plant in the city, it pumps clean effluent into New York City's waterways. Newtown Creek's plant betters the city through this process.

Future - In preparation for a higher population of NYC residents, the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant uses only five of the eight digester 'eggs' used to process organic matter. The plant is also prepared for blackouts, as the machines inside can run on the power generated by the methane from the digester 'eggs'. This plant will sustain NYC's waterways and keep them clean for decades more.
