I for one want the outflow pipe in Baypark extended into the Atlantic Ocean. Pumping millions of gallons of sewage, a day, into the local waterways is an affront to every resident in town and hurts the fishing industry. Residents there have to deal with huge fishkills, odors, and life-threatening waterborne bacteria. And Mr. Santino, we had shellfish harvesting areas in the Town of Hempstead closed by the DEC. Stop passing the buck. Sue Nassau County, do something!
