    This is def happening to our oceans....

    But even with the updates, controlling raw sewage runoff into the Anacostia River during heavy rains may remain an issue until at least 2018, say the District’s water and sewer authority and environmental advocates.

    The long-standing problem: There isn’t enough space in combined sewage and stormwater pipes to effectively transport untreated runoff to the Blue Plains plant.

    “When those pipes reach capacity, overflow valves flip over,” says Brent Bolin, director of advocacy for the Anacostia Watershed Society. “Essentially, raw sewage is discharged into the Anacostia River.”

    I'll probably hit it too, despite the rain. I didn't get sick from yesterday and you could literally smell the water.

    I was offered a better paying job with covered relocation to Chapel Hill and I turned it down. So you literally could not pay me to live down there.

    Pigs are happy in sh!t though, so to each their own.
