Alternative headline: The Land of Fruits & Nuts Epicenter is Full of Sh*t.
"Skimping on toilet water has resulted in more sludge backing up inside the sewer pipes, said Tyrone Jue, spokesman for the city Public Utilities Commission. That has created a rotten-egg stench near AT&T Park and elsewhere, especially during the dry summer months.Perhaps they cannot spell "unintended consequences" out there on the Left coast.
The city has already spent $100 million over the past five years to upgrade its sewer system and sewage plants, in part to combat the odor problem."
"Now officials are stocking up on a $14 million, three-year supply of highly concentrated sodium hypochlorite - better known as bleach - to act as an odor eater and to disinfect the city's treated water before it's dumped into the bay. It will also be used to sanitize drinking water."One hundred million dollars. 14 million dollars. What the heck. It's only other people's money. And these fruits n nuts wonder why California is broke.
But guess what? The same water saving, enviro-nutjobs who demanded the low-flow toilets object to the chlorine clean up. It's ba-ad for the environment.
Perhaps these nutjobs should be looking for two brain cells to rub together instead of creating solutions in search of a problem.
