Up Close and Personal, 200 Feet Underground

When complete, the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's Euclid Creek Tunnel will be 24 feet in diameter, more than three miles long, and capable of storing 60.5 million gallons of combined sewage at a time.

Back in September, we led a group of local politicians and TV media into the Euclid Creek Tunnel to check out our massive tunnel boring machine, nicknamed Mackenzie, as it began this 18,000-foot journey 200 feet below ground.

Enjoy some footage we shot during the visit.

More information about Project Clean Lake -- the Sewer District's program to drastically reduce the amount of combined sewage entering local waterways -- is available at www.neorsd.org.
