A View To A Spill

Tuesday’s enormous storm was not without shitty consequences. Around Sunnyside Beach, the hard and fast rainfall caused a storm sewer to overflow, spilling sewage and rainwater onto the beach, flooding the park and grass, pushing up the boardwalk, and forcing the city to close the beach and nearby Sunnyside Gus-Ryder Pool. While the beach is still closed as the city makes sure things are safe, parents are back to dropping the kids off at the pool—it’s been back open since yesterday. Photographer Christopher Drost beautifully documented the aftermath, and his photos are above.
