So people in New Jersey are better off taking a plunge into their toilets than in the waters off the New Jersey shore.

Exactly. Like the spokesman says, situation is perfectly normal.

They blame it on bird and dog poo washing off from the streets, but most likely they have cross connections between the sewer and storm drains. A pain to find and expensive to fix.

Imagine that, you have the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island and all associated 8 million residents sitting on the Hudson and East rivers flowing out to the ocean around Sandy Hook, and shiat and garbage end up on NJ beaches?   Fugeeddaabout it.

Tomayto, tomahto... Where do you think sea-level beach community septic/sewers go?

I grew up in Atlantic County from the early 70s to the late 90s and I don't ever remember a time when that many beaches were closed down at once, and when they were it was usually for the undertow more than anything else.

If I'm misremembering please feel free to correct me.

$50 to park on some days, $10 a head to step foot on the sand, still shiatty beaches.

If I'm several feet from shore and I'm starting to crown, I'm pulling my swim trunks down and freeing my bowels.

Fecal content, I'm betting on a large population of free poopers in the state:

List of U.S. states by population of Asian Indians
California. 528,176.  1.42%
New York  313,620.  1.62%
New Jersey.  292,256.  3.32%
Texas.  245,981.  0.98%

And the article is about feces in the water...

So one day I am pulling a security job at the beach for a soccer event. Suddenly I understand that I will be shiatting in about 5 minutes. Regardless of my location. All the Porta potties in range are completely sans toilet paper, and I just know that this will not be a shiat that won't matter if I wipe before 11 more hours of security work.
So I take an early break toss on some trunks, and carefully make my way back to the ocean so as not to have premature discharge.
I get about 15 feet out, pull my pants down, and go to release the brown trout. Only instead of brown trout, I pull off my best impression of a startled octopus and release a sort of ink cloud. Only much more brown. A cloud that doesn't seem to want to disperse. In fact, it seemed to be following me as I tried to paddle out of it.
Well after escaping the cloud of my own filth, I wash off in the less contaminated part of the ocean, give the anus the ol' sand and scrub, and emerge from the ocean in much less gastric distress and slightly more traumatized.

Lots of older cities have a combined sewer system (poop and storm drains all go into the same drain pipe by design). One good rain storm that overwhelms the treatment plant (it does happen) and you get an unauthorized discharge of sewerage into the receiving waters and there's not a damn thing that you can do about it other than to report it to the appropriate state and federal regulators.

San Francisco is one of those cities. They've done what they can (most people don't know this but the entire 2 mile stretch of "The Great Highway" is on top of huge holding tanks for storm water catchment before treatment). I don't know how many millions of gallons they can hold but it's not a small amount. Even so they get overwhelmed after almost every major winter storm. There literally isn't any more room to add new tanks.

Radioactive Ass: 2 mile stretch of "The Great Highway"


Incidentally, some of my craps are known as the 2 mile stretch of the great highway.
