No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

If it’s raining,…

…MMSD, The Crappy Water People™, must be dumping. According to their storm update page, they started dumping the combined sewers at 3:30 am, burning up the first of the 6 of those they’re allowed. These dumpings affect all 3 of Milwaukee’s rivers (Milwaukee just after it enters the city on the west bank, Menomonee just after it enters the city, and Kinnickinnkick at I-43/94), as well as the Lake at the Jones Island plant. Worse, there was a separate sewer dump into the lake in St. Francis. Supposedly there have been no diversions.

The stats as of 1:20 pm:
– Deep Tunnel is storing 326 million gallons out of a capacity of 400 million gallons
– Jones Island is treating 277 million gallons out of a capacity of 300 million gallons
– South Shore is over capacity, “treating” 305 million gallons out of a capacity of 300 million gallons

I bet I can guess who’s going to get one of Charlie’s Deep Tunnel Awards Friday :-)
