Moratorium Remains

The State Department of Environmental Conservation is not backing down on Oneida County 's sewer overflow fiasco: the connection moratorium remains ... as well as the fines. [An updated story is here.]

"The county plans to meet with state environmental officials within the next 10 days to discuss the order further."
There is nothing to discuss. . . The problem needs to be solved ASAP.

If the county does not like the consent order, it can always ask the agency for a adjudicatory hearing. . . . It would be interesting to see how the county would fare then.
