NYC Water Main Full of Ghastly, Terrible Gunk

by

That photo, published on Animal NY today and via MSNBC web producer Meg Robertson, is of a New York City water main. This was on 15th Street near 5th Avenue.

According to Animal, workers were repairing the sewer. The water main in question told Robertson that the water main was probably between 80-100 years old. As you can see, it is positively horrifying inside that thing. What is that stuff? Is it in our water? Ugh.
