    Anyone else see the city is getting sued by the Feds? Dumping raw sewage into the ohio, and pigeon creek? The full article is on channel 14 web site. One more reason to CPR on the river!

    Yeah I heard that on the radio while at work tonight. Said it had to do with something with the water runoff from the sewers or some other bull s&^! like that. Way to put just another black eye on the area :sad2: All the crap going on in the cities around here keep pushing people outta there and closer to me. :angry::angry::angry:

    Sorry, didn't see the news link you posted JustinM.

    Maybe instead of complaining about the money it would cost to fix the problem, they should switch the funds that are going towards the new stadium to the water treatment plants and sewer systems... just a thought...

    This has been going on for a number of years. The problem only really occurs when there is a big rainstorm. Downpours overwhelm the sewer treatment facility and then raw sewage ends up in the river. the Clean Water Act mandates that all runoff water go through the treatment facility. That is what causes major problems. Think about how much water is sent to the facility just by running off parking lots and streets during a downpour!! Quite frankly, it is a problem nationwide and not just in Evansville.

    I don't mean to diminish the gravity of the problem. However, I don't think it is quite as egregious as the story portrays it to be.

    I learned that watching politics this year.

    Called blame association.

    If evansville is bad, and biga is from evensville, then biga has to be bad too! :smile2:
