Here are links to newspaper articles published this week written in  response 
to the latest FDEP rejection of the permit renewal application for  the 
Delray/Boynton sewer plant. The sewer plant's permit to discharge  millions of 
gallons a day of partially treated sewage from it's Atlantic Avenue  ocean outfall 
pipe expired December 2005. This is the 5th time  the FDEP has rejected the 
permit as incomplete in the last year.  The  reason it is incomplete is the 
plant's failure to address the most basic premise  of the federal "Clean Water 
Act" - they must show they are not degrading the  receiving environment, which 
in this case is an endangered coral reef.
