Valentine’s Day couples tour Brooklyn sewage plant

16 Feb

A man surprised his girlfriend on Valentine’s day with a date that she will never forget… or at least the smell.

More than 100 people showed up early that morning at Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant to take a free tour of the sewage processor. The tour takes place once a month and just so happened to be on Valentine’s day this year.

“I told her it wasn’t going to be like something romantic,” said Michael Jennings, who sprang the tour on girlfriend Nitisha Rawlings as a surprise. “I mean, it is. It’s very beautiful.”

The complex is the largest of New York City’s 14 sewage treatment plants, processing 1.5 million gallons of waste every day.

“She seemed to be getting a kick out of the experience,” said Jennings.
