Re: NY Trash?
Otter, we do have water issues, but the earlier URL for for a Philly and NJ station, not NBC-NY. And that link didn't mention NYC as a source, at all.
Now, your new link says "the NYC area" which, one might mention, might mean the "Port of New York and New Jersey". Yes, half of that waterfront is Jersey's.
Now, if you'd said, or they'd said, that the waste contained bags saying "Bellevue Hospital" that would be another story. New York's an easy target, but there isn't much medical waste that goes into our storm sewers--which are what dump when there's heavy rain. Or for the matter, in our sanitary sewers. It sounds like they're concerned with "red bag" waste, and that's not often found in the sewers at all.
