WHERE IS THE SEWAGE GOING TO GO ???????

Sewage is a public health issue. The Acushnet River has been closed to shell fishing since the death of over ninety people when they contracted typhoid fever around 1904.

Sewage still remains a major issue in the Acushnet River

During heavy rains sewage flows out from the end of Coffin Ave into the river. This happens because the sewer system in New Bedford is combined with the storm run off system in which the pipes are not large enough to handle the volume, and thousands of gallons can pour out in locations like the end of Coffin Street. The untreated sewage enters the harbor at various points through combined sewer overflows, or CSOs

The sewage in the Acushnet River was and still is today the biggest environmental insult. A letter was written about the Coffin Avenue CSO discharge in 1984 . The odor and visual presence of sewage still pours out into the river today at low tide.

Let's get some environmental answers !

Next is the PDF EPA file from 1984
