Nassau County officials just revealed a plan to lease their sewage treatment plants to a foreign, for-profit company. This plan was hidden from the public but the County Executive has been working on it for over a year and a half.
The Chapter opposes this plan because:
- It will likely cause sewer rates to go up
- The health of the bays can not be trusted to a for profit company
- There has not been an open public process thus far, only backroom deals
