How would they even distinguish city sewage from the rest of the filth on their land?

Look into the story a little further, they are wanting to hook onto the city sewer without having to pay for it.

The media and these lawsuit groups use all these "key words" to hype up emotion in people, ignoring the facts.

Can't really say I'm surprised

Instead of pumping it into the street they could pay a company to do it the right way or pay the city sewage and there would be no problems
