Re: “Save the garfish

Well before all of the tree huggers speak, perhaps all of you should spend a night in south conway near where the current wastewater treatment plant is. For the last 7-8 months there has been a stinch of sewage in the air-and it's almost enough to make someone with a very strong stomach to want to puke. Trust me. The current plant uses exposed ponds to treat sewage and some of this sewage water spills over into Stone Dam Creek, which eventually leads to Lake Conway. I would bet that many don't even know about this but it happens. When the wind is out of the southeast, this part of the city STINKS. The other reason for the odor is a couple of farms that allow RAW sewage to be dumped on the pasture (pumped from septic systems). And people gripe about sewage being "treated" in open ponds...and they don't even know that when their septic is pumped, it's spread out over a cow pasture-and cattle have been known to graze in that same pasture. Kind of makes you think twice about eating beef doesn't it?
