Filter Plant Finally Gets Full Tabloid Treatment

We've got a story in the print edition of the Norwood News that hits the streets tomorrow about the escalating costs of the filtration plant and Assemblyman Jeff Dinowitz's calls for an investigation of the project. But Juan Gonzalez has the story, too, in today's Daily News.
It's a full-page story on p. 8 with a giant photo and dramatic X-ing out of $1.3 and $2.1 billion projected price tags. "The $2.8 billion Hole?" the headline blares. (The Web version of the headline just doesn't get the message across the same way -- it leaves out the 1.3 and the 2.1.)
Almost all filtration stories in the Daily News over the past several years have been relegated to the "Metro" page, buried in the middle of the paper, that only outerborough readers get to see. The play they've given Gonzalez' column today, however, is likely to make a few waves.
