Almost one million gallons of sewage dumped into Lake Erie

Recommended Posts

FYI - there are 151 Municipalities that have NPDES Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO) that discharge into the Great Lakes so this will happen again and again until the CSO systems are engineered out which will likely take quite some time.


Report to Congress: Combined Sewer Overflows into the Great Lakes Basin - EPA report to Congress - CSO

Interesting read if you are not aware of this practice. There were 273 untreated CSO discharge events to a great Lake in Michigan in 2014. Think about that next time swimming, boating in these areas.
