Yesterday, MMSD, The Crappy Water People™, dumped 800,000 gallons of partially-treated sewage into the lake from the Jones Island treatment plant. According to MMSD, the partially-treated sewage, which had the solids removed and was disinfected, flowed while gates were tested for an underground channel at the plant between 10:19 am and 10:53 am. A couple of questions:
- How did it take over a half-hour to figure out there was a problem?
- Will the DNR finally start taking action that matches what they do to fishermen who “pump personal bilges”?
