I am totally against this project if it will placed in MacLeod Mobile Home Parks back yard or across the street from the Park. It will emit odors no matter what is said. There are odors from the Riverhead Sewer plant across the street from the Indian Golf Course. The values of our homes will go down more then what has happened already from the economy. No one will want to purchase or live in our beautiful park. Pauline Sandmann, President MacLeods Civic Association

We sure are having a rough time here. Enough is enough. It is hard enough to sell a place in here with the fees so high, LIPA, and heating. Now we have to deal with a disgusting odor.

The implementation of municipal sewer services will always revitalize and increase property values across the board. This is an undeniable fact. Take any major metropolitan area as an example. People desire to live there in proportion to the services and amenities that they provide.

For those individuals concerned about sewer odors, I have included the following information: Odors emitted by sewage treatment are typically an indication of an anaerobic or "septic" condition. Early stages of processing will tend to produce foul smelling gases, with hydrogen sulfide being most common in generating complaints. Large process plants in urban areas will often treat the odors with carbon reactors, a contact media with bio-slimes, small doses of chlorine, or circulating fluids to biologically capture and metabolize the obnoxious gases. Other methods of odor control exist, including addition of iron salts, hydrogen peroxide, calcium nitrate, etc. to manage hydrogen sulfide levels. High-density solids pumps are suitable to reduce odors by conveying sludge through hermetic closed pipework.
