Re: Pumpout Costs

I'm with Minnewaska on this issue. While I would agree with the goals of clean water, that has to be consistent with a realistic definition of what "clean" means. It isn't the same as "pure", particularly in the coastal areas.

If we eliminated all biologics in the water column it would really screw up the food chain. Maybe the solids from a lectrasan are actually beneficial in the quantities that are actually released, particularly in areas that are flushed, like West Passage.
