Sandy didn't do shiat. Poor planning and engineering on the part of silly humans caused 12 billion gallons of sewage to spill over onto the coast.

Why do you think it took this long to notice?

It can't be "The Garden State" without a heavy dose of fertilizer.

It was an act of God that caused 13 billion gallons of sewage to spill all over the coast.

Is this a prelude to a C.H.U.D. invasion?
 
2013-04-30 11:09:42 AM
No mention of that here on the local Philly news just lots of ads telling us to come visit the Jersey Shore this summer promising it will be recovered and ready for business.

I wouldn't call it poor planning or engineering.  Just a risk of accepted design criteria.  You can build everything to withstand a nuclear blast if you wanted. However, your gas tax, water and sewer rates, and other utility costs would be 10 times what they are currently.

/Infrastructure does not work that way.

Actually, fertizer in the ocean or other water body is not good since alge blooms tend to kill whatever else lives in said water body.

/the complaining is kind of justified

Hmm, I just found this searching for an image of Madera saying "Thank you Lort."  I was confused by the results until I found this from earlier this month with a translation from dutch.

Aren't storm drains supposed to go straight to the waterways specifically so as to not overwhelm domestic sewage treatment?
 
2013-04-30 11:47:04 AM
So what? More shiat than that drives down from NY and philly every summer.
 
2013-04-30 11:47:46 AM
Well, "raw sewage" is still only about 1% human waste. So really, we're talking about 10,890,000,000 gallons of pure fresh water diluting a mere 110,000,000 gallons of poop.

There, now isn't that better? It's all in how you look at it.

Eps05: Aren't storm drains supposed to go straight to the waterways specifically so as to not overwhelm domestic sewage treatment?


Older cities like New York have combined sewer systems that were designed to handle both stormwater and sewage. Whenever heavy rains/storm surge overwhelms the system, it's called a combined sewer overflow (CSO) event. And yes, they are a problem, but you can't change that much infrastructure overnight.

11 billion gallons spilled from DC to CT.  Seems alarming.

Hmm.  Lets multiply by .33 since 2/3 was treated already.

So now we are under 4 billion gallons.

GIS- "New York City's 14 wastewater treatment plants together treat 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater daily. "  That's for 18 million people.

Now stretch treatment area from D/C to Connecticut and, given the number of people that live in that corridor, you can extrapolate a bit.
Baltimore, Washington and Philly have population of nearly 8 million.  NJ population is nearly 9 million.

So, we are looking at roughly 40 million people with 2.9 billion gallons treated per day.

So the spill of untreated wastewater was equal to no more than 1.4 days of waste water.

Anyone want to throw in a dilution factor for the amount of rain that got dumped be my guest.  I'm outa time.

/math- not the best friend of the environmental reporter.

And exactly where was this all going to get dumped anyway?

/New Jersey Vacation - say it out loud, in public...We dare you.
//New Jersey Vacation - Your parents didn't teach you very well did they?
///New Jersey Vacation - I guess you weren't allowed to go anywhere nice.
////New Jersey Vacation - Because they aren't worth the effort.
//The Jersey Shore - It's Sewage & you're swimming in it
(no, we don't have to be nice to you either)
