Four Million Sewage Disks From NH Plant Recovered Along Coast

BOSTON (CBS) – About four million of the estimated 4.3 million sewage disks discharged from a New Hampshire treatment plant in March have been recovered.

The company hired to collect the thin plastic two inch diameter discs says they’ve been recovered all along the Merrimack River from Hooksett, New Hampshire to Newburyport and along coastal beaches from Maine to Rhode Island.

ENPRO’s Jeff Brown says the disks are not considered hazardous. They were set free when heavy rains forced the release of 300-thousand gallons of raw sewage from the treatment plans back on March 6th.

The cleanup effort is ongoing.
