A San Francisco-based group is offering a plan to name a sewage treatment plant after President Bush.

The California group is calling it a tribute to the outgoing chief executive and the "mess" he'll leave behind.

The Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco wants to rename the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant the George W. Bush Sewage Plant. Supporters are hoping to put the issue on the November ballot. They say they've turned in more than 10,000 signatures to San Francisco election officials.

Opponents think the plan reeks. The city's Republican Party chairman has promised a fight if the measure makes the ballot.

A call to White House press officials was not returned.
