Posted October 07, 2018 12:22:15With the Gowanus sewer cameras now operational, the Gowans are finally able to report their first rain event of the season.
A rain event was the first thing that came to mind as the Gowanas, who have been on a wet winter break, came to work for the first time in a long time.
“I can’t wait to start doing some new stuff with our cameras,” said Joe “Rugby” Ruggieri, who manages the Gowas’ video team.
Ruggieri said the Gowanes are looking forward to the new equipment, which includes a digital camera, a weather camera, an infrared thermometer, and a camera that can record and transmit images of sewage water that has been filtered through a plastic bag.
The Gowanus sewers are expected to be operational again next week, with the Gowanians reporting a new record for sewer overflows in their history.
