This video was taken in Brooklyn, NY after a storm, and is a disturbing example of how combined sewers function during heavy rains, discharging huge amounts of sewage to the environment.
The Sewer District has reduced the number of these kinds of discharges in Northeast Ohio, but the problem still exists. Public meetings beginning November 4 will discuss our approach to a solution.

The good, the bad, and the history
Combined sewers are at the heart of Cleveland's sewer history. How were huge pipes designed to divert sewage and stormwater directly to nearby waterways ever considered a good idea? and why are they still in use today?
