> My wife, Mary Normandia, and I spoke to personnel at the sewage treatment plant who asked a group of birders to leave the property. Apparently they are concerned about Dept. of Homeland Security requirements that prohibit public access to the property without additional security measures being put into place. The property includes the access road.
> The person we spoke to said that while birders are not allowed on the property, they can watch from outside the chain link fence that runs along the left side of the access road., i.e. on the embankment. That area is not the property of the sewage treatment plant. If in this area, it would be highly advisable that birders not climb up the embankment so as to be visible from the adjacent highway, which would probably attract unwanted attention from the police.
