Funny how they can say dumping untreated sewage into the rivers will cause no harm but when a private person or business dumps a small amount of chemicals into the sewer they get sued up and down, haz-mat teams are called in and containment bouys are set up to catch every last drop (so they can determine the penalty that will be imposed). When Conagra caused the water temperature to rise in Hastings (no chemical dumping) they were fined big time.

Just goes to show that all of this environmental bull-shit is ONLY about imposing fines and NOT about environmental concerns.

You're an idiot. Do you think before you type or just put whatever comes to mind on the screen. Seriously, there was a flood... The system couldn't handle all of the sewage... They diverted the sewage so people didn't have it back up into their homes...

Keep whining about fines and other rules that you obviously don't understand.
