For those working in and on the Lagoon on a daily basis, there is little doubt as to where the entry point is, for those people with a nose, there is even less doubt if there is sewage at all. The area being affect is very defined. While on tour, you go at least 1 km into the lagoon, the further you go back, less the smell (matter of fact, the ECO SYSTEM as such appears to be working with filtering and giving off oxigen.
But once you get near the entrance, as you go around the bend, the wall of smell is so similar to that of a septic tank (not to be confused with any other house hold odour.
Please note, I don't think for a second that the entire sewerage plant is discharging into the lagoon but only a certain smaller amount, none the less, seeing and smelling is the proof that I would think a common person would conclude that there is some rotten in Denmark (the lagoon).
Now, perhaps the ECO SYSTEM can easily deal with the inflow and other than a smell, there is not harm being done, I am not the one to make that judgement, however, if it was my backyard that the system was being dumped into, I would question WHY? I was only asking because this is the fourth year in a row that we have gone on this particular tour and the first time I have smelled sewage, is this something NEW?
I would suggest that no one is going to just volunteer this information however, with the concerns shown on this board, it seemed like an appropriate issue to bring up.
AGAIN THIS IS ONLY ONE MAN'S OPINION.
