abc7news.com: 2.7 million gallon sewage spill in Richardson Bay along Marin shoreline 2/01/08
It looks like a bit of California legislation got into the water.MARIN, CA -- A large sewage spill occurred Thursday night along the Marin shoreline.
The California State Office of Emergency Services reports that the 2.7 million gallon sewage spill happened sometime between 5:30 and 8:30 pm Thursday night in Richardson Bay. How the spill occurred is still being determined.
Sanitation officials said none of the spill contained chlorine used to treat sewage and the communities of Mill Valley, Sausalito, Tiburon and Belvedere were notified of the spill.
The extent of the spill's spread into the Bay is unknown but there have been no reports of wildlife affected by the spill, Pittman said.
The public is being advised not to come in contact with the water, Pittman said.
I really am sorry for making fun of a bad situation like this.
But yeah, I'm with you. We should regulate that sludge. Tax it. Impose capacity restrictions. People who create sewage are horrible and violent and we should make it as difficult for them as possible.
I won't make a joke about 'floating bolt' restrictions. Oh! Too late.
Sorry... I'll sotp there. Ahem, yes. Couldn't have happened to a nicer town.
I just have one question.
How did they know they had a spill? ............

Really is time to 'Flush' Cakifornia.
this would be such a great time for an earthquake that put them under water.
War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

You might say they got a very "Liberal" dose of their own crap.
While I feel bad about the potential damage to the wildlife in that area, I can't help but marvel at the irony. California is probably the most liberal, environmentally conscious, highly regulated, force their views on others type of state in the Union, with the San Francisco area probably being the worst in the state. South Park did a pretty funny show where it has San Franciscans so pleased with themselves they enjoy the smell of their own farts and that's probably not too far off the mark. To have them cause a major spill of this sort is almost comically ironic.
Sounds like someone just needs to pull the BIG handle and flush the whole state.

Raw Sewage...it's ALL NATURAL & ORGANIC!

But really, its not almost comically ironic. It IS comically ironic.
How else did you think SanFran was spreading their filth around the globe? It's probably their new master plan for world domination.
