I cant believe this could happen in the capital of enviornmental nut jobs. There is more to this than meets the eye. People need to get together and let the politicians know this aint gonna fly. VOTE THEM OUT. Wait till mother earth hears about this - the whole state may slide into the ocean.
For a city and an area that is crying for more water and who already has low quantities, Ya'd think they might make more use by REUSING their already soiled water for fertilizing and irrigating their already dead-thirsty soil!
This is nuts!!!!! I design,spec, sell, and troubleshoot wastewater treatment plants and in the article it sais they are not even doing secondary treatment. The only thing they are doing is removing the solids and sending it out into the ocean. To give you an comparision it would be like having a super large spetic tank to let the solids; poopy, toilet paper, food scraps, settle out then discharge the virus, bacteria infested, e-coli latten water right out into the ocean. Thats just messed up. Heck with the inland bays pollution control stagies and many of the septic systems under regulation of DNREC alot of our onsite septic systems in Delaware have more treatment than thier municipal system. Heck even Maryland with the Bay Restoration Fund and Critical Area septic system requirements have more treatment than them. Thats just sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
