From our toilets, from our sinks, from overland flow and from many other sources, we have been adding/dumping our waste into the Susquehanna River, and - in fact - all of our waterways for well over a century.
Out of sight, out of mind...let the river wash it away.
Yep, that works.
Recent news about the health of the Susquehanna has been circling the web. Endocrine disruptors, herbicides, pathogens and parasites are being offered as an explanation for the decline of the former world-class smallmouth fishery that attracted anglers from hither & yon to the once majestic Susquehanna River.
I offer that we should add a few more to the list...
...apathy, ignorance and emasculated elected officials.
Dead spot on, Dr. Y.
More in the days ahead.
