Sewage Incarnate

One way to get attention if you think your local officials aren't paying enough attention to sewage and water quality issues is to dress up like a giant turd and go to City Council meetings, like these guys do in the City of Rye.

Their complaint is that residents of Hen Island, which hugs the Long Island Sound shore near the mouth of Milton Harbor, have inadequate sewage disposal and that Rye isn't doing enough to change things.

I happen to know and like Mayor Steve Otis, and have worked with him on various projects, and while I don't know the merits of the Turd's arguments, I'm sure Steve considers this to be a stupid distraction.

I have mixed feelings about this. There are a lot of sides to the story. On one hand, I was shocked to see how poor the conditions are on Hen Island.
Then again, creating a bunch of hoopla over a handful of summer bungalows overshadows the bigger issues such as the Mianus River sewage discharge that took place this winter.
