    How should The Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant be rebuilt? $730 million was just allocated to rebuild and modernize the current plant, where UV light would be used instead of chlorine to kill bacteria, and where a concrete berm would be built around the plant to protect against future storms, but at issue is whether it is then advisable to have its outfall pipe run under Fire Island to the ocean, whether tertiary processing is recommended, or affordable, and to what degree not taking either of the aforementioned steps would contribute to nitrogen loads in The Western Bay.

    Bravo to Carl LoBue of The Nature Conservancy and Adrienne Esposito of The Citizen’s Campaign For The Environment for their OpEd in Newsday advocating for an ocean outfall pipe in addition to a new, rebuilt Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant.

    That pipe is crucial to moving the nitrogen laden effluent away from our shores where it does extensive damage to our marshes and bays.
