Video Tour: Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant

1

On Tuesday, May 14, 2013, Nassau County, NY officials took nearly 100 residents on a tour of the embattled Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant on Long Island to explain why such a stench is emanating as the plant undergoes temporary post-Superstorm Sandy repairs.

The Bay Park plant, which serves 40 percent of the county’s population, or about 500,000 residents, was knocked offline for two days after nine feet of saltwater entered the facility during Sandy, and has been running on life support ever since. It is critical that we upgrade these facilities to prevent future spills and to protect the health and well-being of Long Islanders. Come take a video tour of the Bay Park facility and see for yourself what all the stink is about!

    how do they get rid of the sludge? the streets are too small and clean for tanker trucks, and the water is too shallow for ocean going barges? was this plant developed to dump it with the effluent as has been charged?
