Do you want to swim in sewage?

I didn't think so. Thanks to a new bipartisan bill in Congress, you might just be able to find out when you're swimming in sewage.

The Sewage Right to Know Act would require monitoring, reporting, and public notification of sewage dumping into rivers, lakes, and ocean beaches.

It's about time that we find out when we're swimming in sewage...without having to wait for the symptoms.

Mike, thanks for picking up the flushie video and helping us spread the word. On 9/25, approx 100 river/water advocates will take flushie's message (and photos/comments from www.healthyrivers.org/actnow) to congress during River Action Day.

Thanks again and keep up the good work at the Ocean Conservancy.

Best,
Chas
