East Bay Cities to Repair Sewer Systems

East Bay Express

Most East Bay residents take their local sanitary systems for granted and don't think twice about where the waste goes once it disappears down drains and toilets. But a group of state and federal water protection agencies contend that East Bay cities are polluting San Francisco Bay with untreated and partially treated sewage and have obtained a court agreement ordering the cities to make major repairs to their broken and aging sewer systems.
