More Sewage Spills Into Patapsco River

BALTIMORE (AP) — More sewage has spilled into the Patapsco River, which saw 100 million gallons of raw sewage spill after Hurricane Irene.

The most recent spill occurred early Saturday when a joint failed in pipes that had been installed after Irene. Some 525,000 gallons of sewage spilled from a 54-inch concrete pipe into the lower Patapsco.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Baltimore County spent $500,000 to replace aging pipes earlier this month after a main conduit ruptured after the hurricane.

County officials have posted signs along the river saying the water is unsafe to swim or wade in, or even touch.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.
    This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.
