Summary An investigation of Nassau County's two major sewage plants finds that the once state-of-the-art facilities are now putting the plant workers, the environment, and the public at risk. Preventative maintenance had not been performed, the gas valves released gas uncontrollably, and conditions were worse than the administrators wanted the public to know.
