    Why Wisconsin Is Going to Hell #14

    This thread is otherwise known as "Always wear your rubbers"

    This is just plain icky.

    I just figured Latrell Sprewell was having a party on his yacht and that was where they came from.

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel might as well just change its name to "Why Wisconsin is Going to Hell"

    Hey Michael... was "silver fish" part of your engineering terminology thread earlier this year?

    "No one ever saw them coming out of the treatment plant," said Chuck Burney, a DNR official who oversees the sewerage operation. "They've taken steps to guard against it happening again."

    I always love to hear people admit guilt in their denial of any responsibility.

    Silverfish is a new one for me.

    I think this was the worst sentence of the whole article:

    "United Water Service shot back that the district's new $8.5 million system designed to screen out condoms and other "floatables" doesn't work and never has."

    Well... fix it! This is also the first I've heard of a for-profit water treatment facility. I wouldn't want to know some of their other methods for saving money. yuck.

    Milwaukee has had a history of neglecting water treatment. They were discharging untreated waste every few days until Chicago finally sued them and forced them to build deep tunnels. Water treatment politics on the Great Lakes are almost as interesting as water rights politics in the southwest.

    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.
