The membership of the Plymouth County League of Sportsmen fully supports your office regarding the issuance of a much more stringent NPDES permit for the City of Brocktonís WWTP. As an organization of hunters, fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts we are keenly aware and familiar with both the current and historical water quality problems associated with the Brockton WWTP.

While we recognize that they have made significant improvements over the years, we also recognize that we have a long way to go to achieve the goals set forth in the Clean Water Act. To achieve these goals, (to make the Salisbury Plain, Matfield and Upper Taunton Rivers fishable and swimable), we must hold the City of Brocktonís WWTP to the highest possible standards.

Again, we offer our full support to your office and to a discharge permit which will bring us significantly closer to achieving these goals.
