The Dumper Squawks---About Dumping

You can't make this stuff up.

Milwaukee County Board Chairman Lee Holloway Friday defended the board's opposition to use of county streams for treated wastewater from Waukesha on health grounds

Waukesha has proposed using Underwood Creek as a way to return Lake Michigan water the suburban community wants to buy from Milwaukee.

Holloway said in a statement that "returning water in this manner would create a terrible public health situation and put children at risk. Children play in this water and animals drink from this water," Holloway said.

And the several hundred million gallons of RAW sewage dumped into Lake Michigan by MMSD is what--ice cream?

Of course, MMSD is much better at treating wastewater than those stupid people out in the 'burbs. Barbarians actually, with, I'm sure raw sewage running down the streets as the great unwashed throw their buckets out the window.

But's "for the children" least according to the slumlord.

MMSD is run by a private agency, but is a city issue. Holloway has nothing to do with MMSD. But don't let facts get in the way.

As for the Waukesha water, the cleaning they propose would not take care of medicine and chemicals. Nor would their proposal address the flooding issue.

As usual, Crapper misses the point or prefers to support a slumlord. Which is it?
