Oliver Attends Danbury Unveiling Of Renamed Sewage Treatment Plant

The tongue-in-cheek saga of a TV personality and Danbury's sewage treatment plant continues. Last Week Tonight host John Oliver recently visited the plant for a videotaped ceremony unveiling a sign that reads, "John Oliver Memorial Sewer Plant." Mayor Mark Boughton posted photos on social media of Oliver's appearance. Danbury officials jokingly named the plant after Oliver sarcastically attacked Danbury in a previous show. Oliver said he would donate money to charity if the city followed through on the naming.
