Map of sewersheds and combined sewer lines in East Harlem Study Area

The map below shows the individual Combined Sewer sewersheds (in purple- click for designation) within the study area, overlaid with the individual combined sewer lines that carry sewage and rainfall through the area. In dry weather, all flow is routed to the Wards Island Treatment Plant, but when it rains heavily the wet-weather flow overflows through the numerous individual outlets into the Harlem River.
