Waste water was removed by the sewage systems and released into nearby bodies of water, keeping the towns clean and free from noxious waste.

Disgusting.  Why are we tolerating this? Are your gas prices lower?  Even if they were, would that be worth the total destruction of what's left of our environment???

The deliberate pollution of billions of gallons of fresh water annually to fill the pockets of the greedy republicans.
