    Anybody wanna fish the Blue river? :crazy::crazy::crazy::crazy:

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- More than 3 million gallons of untreated waste has been dumped into the Blue River as the result of a sewer line break, according to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

    The DNR issued a violation to Kansas City as a result of the break.

    The break, which occurred in Marion Park, released untreated waste into an unnamed stream that travels through a park before draining into the Blue River. After the point where the tributary reaches the Blue River, the river travels for another estimated one mile before reaching Swope Park.

    State officials said they have been working with city workers to repair the sewer line break.

    The DNR has ordered the city to take water samples in the tributary above and below the site of the release, and to sample water in the Blue River.

    Probably won't lose many catfish on this leak. They are tougher than sh!t.
    Really, just think of all of the crap they have to deal with downstream of
    Lawrence. Most of the time the water that makes it out of a water
    treatment plant is pure enough to drink. Only reason it don't go back into
    the city water is no one likes the idea of drinking water you just took a
    dump in. Turds are some of the rough stuff they filter out first and some
    systems compost the organic material. When they finish with it, its just
    rich plant food. Yeah. Well to some folks, that's not what they would
    want put on their lawn to make it greener. Flush twice. KU needs water.

    You might get a reply from Charlie on this one.He runs the treatment plant down there.:smile2::smile2::wink:

    But I hear he is working overtime right now trying to filter the water coming down the river from KSU.Word is there is a whole bunch of $&$% in it that is taking extra time to get out so its fit to drink.What I heard is its like salt water due to tears from wildcat fan!!!!:smile2::smile2::confused2::cool2::crazy::eek:oooh:

    This happens purposely sometimes, especially during big rains. Municipalities will dump the watered down raw sewage directly into the rivers to avoid infiltration at the wastewater treatment plants. :angry: Don't know if it's that way in Kansas, but that's the way it works in Tennessee.

    One more thing, it'll be an excellent time to look for used condoms. They get flushed down the toilets pretty often, you know. :crazy:
