The sewage castle of Columbia Point

Aline Kaplan introduces us to the history of the Calf Pasture pumping station on what is now the UMass Boston campus on Columbia Point: The pumping station was built in an era of ornateness for public buildings, even those whose function was to help pump raw sewage to Moon Island, where it would be released as the tide went out - on land that was originally used for grazing cows.
