Officials say the plant still needs another half billion dollars in upgrades to keep it from failing again in the event of another hurricane like Sandy.
“Hurricane Sandy and Irene should erase any doubt that Long Island is not vulnerable to coastal storms."
“It is like opening a brand new place. Business was phenomenal.”
A new report estimates that 2.2 billion gallons of sewage spilled from the plant after Sandy, second only to a plant in New Jersey.
