Re: “Hogwashed, Part 2: Environmental Advocates Say Hog Facilities’ Antiquated Waste-Disposal Systems Are Threatening the State’s Waterways

The Neuse river also passes through major municipalities like Raleigh, Goldsboro, Kinston and New Bern who are legally allowed to pump partially treated human waste into this beautiful river. Hogs are an easy target while we make no mention of other anthropogenic pollution in this river. In my opinion the scope for targeting pollution in our river needs to be widened to include these municipalities. The Black river is one of the cleanest rivers in the state and runs right through the middle of Sampson county, 2nd to Duplin in hog production. Our cities and water treatment facilities need our scrutiny just as much if not more than our CAFOs when it comes to depositing waste into our water ways. I hope that INDY will investigate municipalities just as well as they have with the hog industry.
