Combined Sewage Overflow OK’d for Great Lakes
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing & implementing section 425 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016. Which will allow greater pollution and raw sewage to be dumped, sorry strategically placed in various lakes in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania & New York.
Studies show unchecked raw sewage can cause a smorgasbord of illnesses including intestinal, respiratory and infectious diseases. The proposed rule change, suggests the EPA work with local authorities to create a possible notification system that would warn citizens when their bathing, drinking and recreational water is contaminated.
In an alleged press conference Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Scott Pruitt said “the thought is that the combined sewer overflow (CSO) or discharges to the Great Lakes should be communicated to citizens so they can protect themselves when discharges of sewage are made”.
Last week following Scotts presentation an adorable couple moved in Scotts neighborhood, early the next morning little independent Bobby decided to brush his teeth for the 1st time with that new brown toothpaste, he began to cry as if in pain. Scared, his parents rushed into the bathroom, saw what was happening & said son don’t play in the toilet. Little Bobby pointed to the sink & said they didn’t tell us on time, while the brown paste dripped from his crying lips.
