Dubya Memorial Sewage Treatment Plant will go on ballot
The city Department of Elections today certified the ballot measure for November’s election to name a sewage treatment plant in San Francisco after the 43rd President.
The “satiric” (sic) effort became a reality when 7,168 of the over-12,000 signatures turned in were approved by the elections department.
The plant, presently named the Oceanside Water Treatment Control Plant, is located near the Zoo (click for a map!).
