Our brothers/sisters in local activism, the Sludge Stoppers Task Force, have alerted us to the "Nassau County Right to Know of a Sewage Spill Bill," introduced by county legislator David Denenberg. This proposed legislation is the result of tireless efforts in stopping the illegal dumping into Reynolds Channel and the commitment to address the lack of public notification protocol. The Bill requires the DPW to report discharge over legal limits to the Board of Health who will then be required notify the public. Why a system like this doesn't already exist is disturbing and it needs to set up now.

Sign and tell all our Legislators to sign this Bill into law.
