Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant
The sewage spilled into surrounding waters and even some city streets, most of it in New York City and northern New Jersey.
It was one of the most dangerous environmental side effects of Superstorm Sandy – crippled sewage treatment plants sent raw waste into homes.
The biggest breach took place at the Bay Park sewage treatment facility where a nine foot wall of water flooded the pumps. That led to the sewage inundation of more than 100 homes across nine South Shore villages.
Nassau County executive Edward Mangano on Tuesday evening ordered some residents to conserve water, as a major sewage facility for the Long Island county has been shut down following Superstorm Sandy.
