Putting the O Back in H2O

Maybe you've noticed something different about the Gowanus Canal, namely a huge pipe running between the 3rd Street Bridge and the Carroll Street Bridge. Well, they're not there to pump any gunk out, they're there to pump oxygen in. The New York City Department of Environmental Protection has installed the pipes to maintain oxygen levels while the Flushing Tunnel is closed down for maintenance. At least they're not just letting it all go to shit.
