Phila CSO’s Hurt Tacony Frankford More Than Other Receiving Waters

The Tookany-Tacony-Frankford Creek has proportionately more CSO discharges  than any other City receiving water.  This recent Philadelphia CSOCast map snapshot hows that 6 CSOs overflowed to the small TTF Creek in the prevous 24 hours compared to 6 each for the much larger Delaware and  Schuylkill Rivers and 4 to the small Cobbs-Darby Creek.

Philadelphia is dumping excessive stormwater trash to the small, challenged TTF and Cobbs-Darby creeks.
