    This project has been a disgrace right from the beginning. Does it really take 8 years to get something done? People think that this lift station is just servicing a small section of the city, but the station this will replace handles 1,000,000 gallons of sewage each day which not only comes from the West of the Trail neighborhood, but parts of downtown and St Armands, Bird, & Lido Keys as well. The 30 + year old system has been intermittently and without warning dumping raw sewage into Hudson Bayou which drains it into the bay. Will it take sewage running down the street to get some action? This was supposed to be a "state of the art' facility. After experiencing the similarly touted parking meters, I'm beginning to believe that the definition of "state of the art" is stuff that doesn't work.
