Dear Chairman Wilson:
Re "The future of the town is at stake," said Robbie
Marshall, WPCA Info Specialist, 2Jul09 Harbor News,
Letters to the Editor.
The future of the town is always at stake. Spare us the
What would be helpful is a public response to my letters
of 16Oct08 and 14May09, which, in essence, requested
the OSWPCA to supply a legal definition (which could be
challenged in court) for an 'undersized' septic tank.
The premise that any septic tank of any size which has
provided satisfactory service for 50+ years could
suddenly become 'undersized' lacks any basis in logic.
It flys in the face of the time-honored engineering
principle, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'. The OSWPCA
definition of 'undersized' is necessarily arbitrary and
capricious. Say you otherwise? silence gives consent.
Feel free to post my letters, and your response, to
your website. Please notify me if you do. They could be
the object of a future FOI (Freedom of Information)
request in any event.
Very truly yours,
Joel R. Anderson
