Might Ithaca wastewater issues flow uphill?

That's the question I was left with at the end of this Journal article about labor issues at the Ithaca Area Wastewater Treatment Plant. Town Supervisor Steve Trumbull sounds concerned:

Both Valentino and Town of Dryden Supervisor Steven Trumbull said they knew nothing about the contract change until they were called by plant workers shortly before their published letter to the editor....

Trumbull said he was especially worried by the possibility of financial repercussions from a DEC fine.

"When I heard that, I said, 'Whoa,'" Trumbull said. "We're only 2 percent of the plant, but we're still responsible."

On the opinion page, Janet Lang of Dryden writes to support Chris Clauson for Town Justice. Bill Mobbs of Ithaca writes to support Cheryl Nelson for Town Supervisor, and Joanne Sterling of Dryden writes to support Stan Marcus for Town Board. Arjan Crimi of Dryden writes to support Mary Ann Sumner for Town Supervisor.
