We agree with almost everything this fellow says especially that the perception of pollution may be more important than reality in this case.

Coastal NJ has spent hundreds of millions of dollars creating more water infrastructure because of their ocean outfall pipes. Anyway, great letter http://capegazette.villagesoup.com/p/ocean-outfall-equals-rehoboth-downfall/1160074#1162492
