WILLIAMSBURG - A Bushwick man is determined to make Newtown Creek cleaner by diverting sewage water into a pool for the community to enjoy.

Brooklyn architect Raul Shah's "exorcise pool" will collect storm water and runnoff, filter it, and send the purified sewer water into a public pool.

This, he says, would prevent the notoriously toxic creek from getting even more contaminated.

Shah hopes to build the pool on an empty lot in industrial east Williamsburg.

The plan has not been approved by the city or community yet, but Shah says he hopes to start fundraising soon.
