Two city cesspool
trucks still missing

Whatever happened to those two cesspool trucks that were reported missing by the Department of Wastewater Management several years ago?

The two cesspool pumper trucks -- reported stolen in early 1996 -- have never been found, according to Doug Woo, spokesman for the city Department of Environmental Services.

"As far as we know, the police investigation is still open," he said. "We don't know what happened to the trucks."

The two trucks, which have never been replaced, were reserve vehicles used when any of the 24 operating trucks went down for maintenance, Woo said. The city has four or five on reserve now, he said.

One of the 2,000-gallon trucks cost $37,336 when purchased new in 1977. The other was bought for $64,899 in 1987.
