The Sound is a No-discharge Zone for Boats; Malfunctioning Sewage Systems are Another Matter

It's a sad irony that a week after federal officials decided that everything was in place -- enough pump out facilities, educated and willing boat owners -- to declare all of New York's portion of Long Island Sound a no-discharge zone for sewage from boats, a malfunction in Westchester County's equipment caused a spill of 162,000 gallons of sewage into the Sound.
