Breezy Point Sewers

Dear Editor:

When will Breezy Point come into the 21st century as far as the environment goes? The community has changed over the years. Now it is mostly a year round home for thousands of people. It is time the coop installs sewers.

Septic tanks and cesspools leak. This is not like the country where houses are spread out. Breezy is full of homes and a lot of flushing! And on top of the “toilet” issue, some people empty washing machines right into the sand beside their homes. This cannot be healthy.

Eventually, raw sewage can spread under and around neighbors’ houses and then into the bay and ocean. The lack of sewers in Breezy Point is a danger to all of Rockaway. Some oppose sewers because of the cost. Well, the pollution is something none of us can afford.
