Digester Egg Tour Information & Registration
Tour Dates & Registration
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection hosts tours of the Digester Eggs at the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Tours take place three times a year: February, April, and October. The next tour will be held on April 16, 2016. Three time slots are offered for each tour, which are free to the public ages 12 and above; however, advance registration is required because space is limited. Registration information for this tour will be posted approximately two weeks prior to the scheduled date.
These popular tours fill up quickly, so please be sure to check our website to make sure you do not miss out.
What to Expect
The Digester Egg Tour starts with an overview of the wastewater treatment process—an essential part of protecting public health and NYC’s waterways. After, guests are treated to unobstructed views of the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens skylines from the observation deck, a glass-enclosed walkway built atop DEP’s state-of-the art digester eggs.
