Getting ready to go to the site of the Largest Pump Station in the World!

Hardhat, safety glasses, vest, earplugs, ID, gloves. The green arrow points to the sample of the water from Lake Pontchartrain (in the background) and the black peat floating in it – we thought it might be oil (it was not).

I was working at the WORLDS LARGEST WATER PUMPING STATION, in New Orleans! Interesting that it does not have a name, only WBV-90. It will pump 1 million gallons a minute.
