The Creek Speak Project is not intended to prove causality between the environmental burdens in Newtown Creek neighborhoods and public health concerns.. Rather, its purpose is to highlight and document the experiential knowledge of individuals who are inside narrators of day-to-day life in these communities.. Where Does My Toilet Flush To?.. Every day, nine million New Yorkers discharge 1.. 5 billion gallons of liquid waste into their sewer system.. Underground and out of sight their urine, feces, and food scraps combine with litter and pollution from the street.. This nasty brew then navigates 6,000 miles of pipe towards two possible futures: decontamination at one of 14 treatment plants or discharge into New York Harbor via one of 494 sewer overflow outfalls.. A sewage overflow can be triggered by as little as a tenth of an inch of rain, which essentially means that almost every time it rains, your toilet flushes directly into New York Harbor..
