    When I grew up in Cape May, Hunt's Pier in WW was THE place to be for my birthday celebrations. Is WW Crest still holding its own, or is it going down the tubes as well? OCM pumps it's treated wastewater offshore as well, but the offshore pipe goes two miles offshore. No signs of effluent yet, even from a weekend crowd of 300,000 in the summer months, and they've been doing this since they built it in the early seventies.

    So should we start a betting pool on what date the Caribbean Oil Leak tarballs arrive on our shores?

    the sewage isnt coming from new jersey towns. from my knowledge all shore towns in NJ have a sewage system seperate from the street runoff meaning that when it rains the sewage treatment plants are not disrupted however the major contributor to this pollution is NYC where they have a sewage system that is connected to storm drains on the streets. when it rains NYC opens their output valves into the hudson rivers and new york harbor to divert the water as to not backup and harm the sewage treatment plants there. they do put large socks over the pipes to catch the solid effluent but these fill up quickly and end up falling off. with the outgoing tides the water is brought around sandy hook and swept out into the ocean. depending on the winds the water either heads south towards belmar or heads straight east funneling along long island. the only sollution is to make sewage treatment plants in NYC much more efficient... anyone here a water treatment engineer?? help a brother out yo!

    when it comes to Wildwood. that town is notoriously known to north jersey kids as a place where teens can go and get wasted andstay in horrible motels and no one will care. Seaside Heights is also known for this. the problem is much wider than just that community. thetown would need to address the tourists inthe summer to fix this problem

    P.S. WILDWOOD THIS WEEKEND FOR POSTPROM - cant blame me man

    From what I thought was that rain water run off also was treated before it was pumped into the ocean . I know that if there is more water than the treatment center can handle it is bypassed and goes directly into the ocean un treated. It not so bad in the off season months . But in summer with all the added traffic and tourism the water can get really messed up after one or two heavy rain falls

    This is partly true depending on run off, but there are also towns in New Jersey who have issues. New York only cares about themselves and this situation can happen depening on tides and currents. NYC and other cities just pollute and trash everything. Basically, NYC just lets all their trash and crap affect other areas. I would be a happy camper if I never had to visit NYC again. It smells like urine and crap all the time there. I guess they are not disposing of all there waste, lol.

    They also love coming down to our beaches and trashing our towns. They have no respect for other's property and they trash the beach with garbage. Everyone from NYC that I have ever met have no respect. That's just how people are raised in NYC. The love trashing towns, have no respect for others, love creating the spiky hair gel look, wear the ed hardy shirts, love gold chains, and where enough cologne that kills more fish than the oil spill when they jump in the water. They should fence in NYC and make it a circus. Then, they could just charge admission to see that freak show and prevent them from coming down here.

    so for sure the brown line on the horizon is form sewage? it was above the water, looked almost like land on the horizon. it seems almost too simple.

    The Crest is OK and NWW is holding its own. WW is the problem. I still have a lot of ties to WW so I have a good idea of what is going on. Trust me - the police have their hands full. Hunts Pier was the place to be ! The Morey family is doing a great job carrying on the tradition. I felt sick when they started tearing down the Golden Nugget mine ride. At least NWW is breaking real well.

    WW (not Crest or North) has been a dump for at least 15 years now. That boardwalk is probably worse than Seaside.
