Septic tank ordinance a ‘public embarrassment’
To the editor:
In 2004, the board of health evidently enacted the septic tank ordinance for no valid reason, and now it is attempting to defend that action with such stalwart statements as “had to start somewhere” or it was based on “expert testimony.”
Who were the experts? They must have been the septic tank pumpers since they are the only beneficiaries of the ordinance.
