Potty Mouths

 (Skip Dickstein/Times Union)
East Greenbush has been hit with DEC fines over the sewer plant seven times during the last 15 years

According to the Sept. 24 agreement with the Department of Environmental Conservation, the sewer plant exceeded state pollution standards 16 times between January and June, sometimes at very high levels.

For example, levels of dangerous fecal bacteria in the river were up to 224 times state standards during May and June when fishermen were crowding the river in the spring for the annual striper run. Exposure to such bacteria can cause gastrointestinal and breathing problems.
