It's time to stop Legoland from polluting our streams

    To the Editor:

    Last September 2018, after New York State issued its first five violations and fines to the Legoland project for the runoff and pollution of the Otterkill local streams, I asked that the project be stopped. I was assured by the town board that they were on top of the problem.

    Now, after six months and 22 more incidents, I am again demanding that all work stop immediately until the project meets all the requirements set by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). It's most important that a better system to prevent future runoff is designed, but the town also must require the environmental damage already done be corrected!

    I am tired of excuses. It's time to stand up and get results.
