Households Willing to Pay to Treat Sewage Properly

"While many argue that secondary treatment is too costly, we believe the public wants clean beaches and is willing to pay for them. USC and UC Berkeley researchers found that more than 66% of Southern Californian households with at least one beachgoer would be willing to pay $100 annually to prevent beach closures resulting from sewage discharge." (Excerpt from a letter from Matt Hagemann, Executive Director of Orange Coast Watch, appearing in the Los Angeles Times, pg. B17, June 16, 2002)
