Calm the hell down people. A while ago the State Police went on a freakout over a sighting of someone dumping a silvery substance from a cooler into the aqueduct. Turns out it was the most obvious thing: A guy was fishing and emptied the ice when he was done and about to hike back to his car.

Don't drink the water because Dave Matthews emptied out the bus shiatters in there.

This wouldn't have happened if they had privatized water treatment because... um... er... magic!

Here in Murray, we have a saying.  If it's brown, drink it down!  If it's black... send it back.

Inside job. Adjusting these settings would not be apparent to anyone without training.

Sounds like something the local good-for-naughts would do when they're bored and drunk.

"Hey, Eldon.  Whadda ya think these knobs do?"

"I dunno, Duane.  Hold mah beer and let's find out."

Training? Nah, you just put on "Whole Lotta Love" and run about twiddling all the knobs and buttons.

I live just a little south of there. Every quarter for several years the city had to mail out warnings that they were poisoning us through their own water mismanagement.

/must be something in the water

Mountain biking is great there. Most people were not dicks to us. We were even rescued by a nice woman in a Lexus after we ran out of water on our way up a huge mountain.

You're like the guy that goes to a party, gets drunk, fiddles with the ipod, and treats everyone to Linkin Park.

In that part of Georgia, they would pronounce 'Duane' "Duh-wain."

/as in Duh-wain Allman

//Boomhauer voice:  Talk about 'em dang ol' Allman Bros, man.  All 'em got killed in a motorcycle crash, man.

Chatsworth Water Works manager Steve Smith says someone changed the settings for how chlorine and fluoride feed into the system.

In Spencer, Massachusetts a few years ago a clueless technician dumped a load of sodium hydroxide in the water system. That error was not caught before dozens of people were injured.

More recently, Massachusetts regulators went nuts when town workers in Rowley butchered deer at a water supply pump house.

The deer incident, harming nobody, received a greater fine than the lye incident, which sent people to the hospital.

Hm, I'm studying water treatment, I wonder if I should send in my resume...

Too old for that noise...I get drunk, fiddle with the stereo, and treat everyone to Warren Zevon.

Assuming there's a turntable, of course...anything more recent, like an mp3 player, just confuses me, even when I'm sober...

My guess: Bored drunk teenagers randomly pressing buttons and turning dials. Might not even have know what the facilities are used for.

My ex-wife's family is from there. I'm not a gambling man, but I'd put money on it being a guy named Steve. And he did it just for the lulz.

I assure you nobody broke in. The plant operator is lazy and has his / her underlings do the managing of the plant.  Since the minion screwed something up royally doing something only a licensed operator should be doing, they called it a break in to cover the operator's ass.
