NYC combined sewers

NYC's sewer system combines waste water and rainwater, and sometimes it overflows.

NYC combined sewers is a Twitter bot created by Neil Freeman. From author’s website:

The [New York city] sewer system is under the charge of Department of Environmental Protection. DEP has modelled what rain storms lead to overflows, and helpfully publishes alerts when rainfall indicates an upcoming overflow.

@combinedsewer rephrases those alerts, inserting news about often-ignored waterways into Twitter’s real time stream of news and talk.
