Swimming in Sewage? You Have a Right to Know! [Spread the Word!]

Are these kids unwittingly swimming in sewage?

You and your family could be swimming, boating or fishing in sewage and not know it.Urge your New York State Senator to support the Sewage Pollution Right to Know Act and get access to the information you need to protect your health and the health of your loved ones.

This act, which passed unanimously in the NY State Assembly last week, will require our wastewater treatment plants to notify the public when sewage is discharged into our waterways. Tell your State Senator that you want this law passed this year, before the swimming season begins.  A trip to the beach should not cause a trip to the Emergency Room

The Bay Park Sewer Treatment Plant in East Rockaway discharged partially treated sewage into Reynolds Channel from Aug 15, 2010 to January 3rd 2011 and YOU WERE NOT TOLD.  We are very close to getting this law passed, lets not have it not pass the Senate.  PLEASE TAKE ACTION it is easy just fill in the blanks and tell your Senator, “YOU HAVE THE  RIGHT TO KNOW”!

Please forward this email to your friend and neighbors and let’s tell Albany that New Yorkers have a right to know about sewage pollution in our waterways.

Thank you for your support.
