Ho­gan’s short-sighted de­ci­sion on sep­tics

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND VOICES - Anayezuka Ahid­i­ana, Bal­ti­more

Regarding Gov. Larry Ho­gan’s de­ci­sion to no longer re­quire many home­own­ers to use best avail­able tech­nol­ogy sep­tic sys­tems, not us­ing such sys­tems may save some money in the short run but it will be far costlier over the long run (“Gov. Ho­gan will roll back O’Mal­ley-era sep­tic rule, de­mands re­peal of “road kill bill,” Aug. 20).

When a safer, wiser so­lu­tion is avail­able it should be used. Politi­cians should be lead­ing the way in a di­rec­tion that ben­e­fits every­one and that does the least dam­age to our en­vi­ron­ment.

It’s one thing if you don’t know bet­ter, but when you do know bet­ter and still see money as more im­por­tant it’s un­ac­cept­able.
