Re: "Sewage treatment foes out in force," Nov. 15.
It is amazing the logic people use to try to save a bit of money and the euphemisms they use to describe dumping raw sewage into the ocean.
The latest is calling it a "marine-based sewage-treatment system."
All the taxpayers who don't want to pay for a proper land-based system are trying to claim the cheaper ocean-dumping system is better for the environment.
My guess is if the ocean-dumping system cost $750 million more than a proper land-based system, you would not be able to find one supporter for polluting the ocean. The support for ocean dumping is not based on science, it is just based on money.
