    • A lot of ’em are using their iPod/ cell phones instead of socially interacting with each other, makes you fear where society is headed when we isolate ourselves from the person next to you.

  1. Sorry but, New York has already been using ultraviolet for years to treat their effluent. Nice treatment plant, I especially like the museum! You should do a part two and show more of the plant and its primary, secondary and settling processes. Do they press out their sludge or incinerate it and turn it into plant energy?
