 There are eight million residents and workers of NYC that discharges 1.4 billion gallons of wastewater into network system of over 6000 miles of sewer pipes. In this system, there are 135,000 sewer catch basins and 494 outfalls for combined sewer and storm-water discharges.

 This wastewater is aided by 93 pumping stations that pump the influent to 14 waste water treatment plants that are stationed throughout the five boroughs.
