Trouble at the Stamford Sewage Treatment Plant
First, a few months ago, there were complaints from a couple of shellfishermen in the Stamford-Greenwich area about how troubles with the plant's disinfectant system were forcing them to curtail harvesting oysters and clams and therefore costing them money.
Then a couple of weeks ago Stamford figured prominently in a story about how power outages at treatment plants caused sewage spills during the two big storms in the second half of last year.
Now today's Advocate has a long piece about how the cause of the problems might well be poor leadership at the plant and poor oversight in city hall. It's worth reading, here. My only quibble is that I would have liked to have seen a couple more paragraphs about how the administrative troubles have led to water pollution troubles.
