Opinion: Letter to the Editor: The City That Does Not Care?

I have lived in Alexandria for many years and have been proud to do so, thus I was stunned to read in the national press that we are pumping millions of gallons of raw sewage into the Potomac and have been doing so for many years. I think the current council is to be congratulated for being the first to address this problem; however, the current foot-dragging is regrettable. Alexandria prides itself on being " A City that Cares." We cannot say this and continue to contaminate the river. Either we adopt as our motto "The City that Does Not Care" or we stop the dumping. I suggest we clean up our act — literally.
