"Right to Know Spill Bill"

652 Signatures Goal: 1,000

WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHEN WE ARE
FISHING AND SWIMMING IN SEWAGE


From March through December 2010, the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant periodically released sewage 40 times above the legal limit into Reynolds Channel, and no one notified the public about it. Community groups and concerned citizens demanded that the County fix the problem and, as a result, plant remediation has begun and the plant has been discharging in legal limits since January.


However, if high levels of sewage were to be dumped again, there is no protocol for notifying the public. A group of concerned citizens, environmentalists and civic leaders formed the Sludge Stoppers Task Force to address this problem of sewage spills and lack of public notification.

Nassau County Legislator Dave Denenberg introduced the
“Nassau County Right to Know of a Sewage Spill Bill”
that would require agencies to report sewage spills and other dischargeviolations to the public.

The “Nassau County Right to Know of a Sewage Spill Bill”
legislation is sitting in committee.
Reynolds Channel lies within the districts of both
Legislators Denise Ford & Howard Kopel.

We, the undersigned, urge Denise Ford, Howard Kopel and all Legislators to sign onto Legislator Denenberg’s
“Nassau County Right to Know of a Sewage Spill Bill”
so WE THE PEOPLE of our communities are notified when we are
Fishing and Swimming in Sewage.

    This is critical to lives of Nassau County and the wetlands that protect the inland shore areas.
