This filthy waste water shows used condoms, an empty aluminum beer can, cigarette butts, bits of white plastic, candy wrappers, unknown white scum, dead grass, dead leaves, small twigs, and a log just some of the things swimming around in it.

Since this is collected waste water from the borough’s sewers pumped into the small artificial lake in Centennial Park there is no mystery about the quality of this water however, what we see in this picture is material that irresponsible visitors have dumped into it.

I took this picture in early Summer near the main pumping station at the far end of the lake where there is a small wooden bridge crossing a sort of deep trench next to the station because I found this pollution revolting.

This my contribution for WP single word prompt:”FILTHY”.
