In the spring of 2012, a towering structure rose above the Bayonne skyline. The 262-foot, 70-ton white turbine was the first industrial windmill of its kind in the New York-Northern New Jersey metropolitan area and could be seen from Battery Park in Lower Manhattan.

Near the Oak Street sewerage plant, the turbine—with blades that are 252 feet in diameter—pumps the city’s entire sewerage and 40 percent of its storm water.—Kate Rounds
