Group Sues For Testing of “Dirty Water”

A lawsuit was filed against the Boston Water & Sewer Commission for failing to test for pollutants in Boston Harbor and numerous rivers in the city, as reported by Universal Hub.

“The Conservation Law Foundation formally accused the city of failing to stop high levels of bacteria, oil and dissolved metals and chemicals pour into Boston Harbor through its 201 “outfall” pipes that collect road runoff from nearly 20,000 catch basins … The foundation also said the commission knows about illegal connections to the system yet has done nothing about them.”
