People typically do not enjoy bathing in tubs of sewage or relieving themselves in waste-filled commodes.

Of course, this happened in Florida not Japan

A swale is what you build when your state has no natural topography.

swale - area between the street and the sidewalk.

Otherwise known as the 2nd driveway.

Funny story. A few years ago a friend of mine who works for a industrial sewage company (they install the big pipes in the ground for the city). They were doing repair work on a section of pipe and had setup a bypass which basically consisted of a large flexible tube and a large pump that pumps the sewage around the repair area.  The work wasn't completed at the end of the day so someone was left to watch and monitor the pump over night. Person didn't do their job and the pump stopped working in the middle of the night. End result, and entire neighborhood was flooded with in inch of raw sewage. Company's insurance had to pay out multi-millions of dollars. Luckily it was a small neighborhood.

A shallow ditch that is lower than your yard and meets with the road. Also used for overflow parking if you have a party.

That was one of the first truly disgusting things I ever saw on the internet.

I see my old landlord has expanded operations to Florida now, and is no better at DIY sewer repair than he was 12 years ago.

/Had a puddle of raw sewage next in the front yard for 3 weeks
//Had to call the Health Department to get them on his ass
///Didn't renew

In Florida, thar be a swale.

Fun fact: the city owns that property, yet you have to pay to have it maintained. One day I think I'll re-sod that area and send the bill to the city, just for luls.

The "stench of raw sewage" greeted an officer who arrived at the scene. That officer also noted "brown water" in the swale.

No, not really. Normally the swale is too shallow for the gators to feel good in.

The canals and drainage on every other block for the SFWMD folks, on the other hand...

So it's just sewage I mean at least it's not burning or radioactive.

West Lake Landfill is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Superfund site that's home to some of the oldest radioactive wastes in the world. A six-foot chain-link fence surrounds the perimeter, plastered with bright yellow hazard signs that warn of the dangers within.

I live in Wellington now. The areas that aren't Marshlands are filled with douches who ride horses. They WILL let you know that they ride horses. They WILL rub it in your face how well off they are. And they WILL confirm the levels of douchiness on par with the Jersey Shore clan.

The report did not say whether brown nosing was involved.

Let me put it to you this way.

When I live din Port Saint Lucie, and travelled for work, I once turned on CNN and was greeted with a 'Live on the Scene' spot done...from the end of my block. That week, Saint Lucie County was, all at once:

- On fire. Record Wildfires. Ones so big and out of control, CNN sent live crews to film them.
- Under Flash Flood Warnings / Flooded. Heavy Rainfall and clogged drainage canals out west was causing a bunch of folks to drive part of the way home from work, park their vehicles on the side of the road, and canoe the remaining few miles home
- Under severe, explosive-danger drought. So bad, you weren't allowed to park your car on grass. No, really. At all. Anywhere.
- Under a West-Nile-Virus outbreak, along with...what was the name of the other bug that the skeeters had? damnit, I don't remember...some african tropical thing. We had county pickup trucks going down the street three times a week air-fumigating the entire area for mosquitoes and other virus carriers.

This was all simultaneously.

No, I don't miss living in Saint Lucie County.

They've got a neighborhood out there that has a runway and every house has a hangar for a plane.

That is pretentious.

That sounds awesome, I'd love to taxi up to my house.  Of course the noise of living next to airport runway would pretty much suck.

Fly in ranches. Those are popular all over Florida. I lived one county north, in Indian River, and we had two neighborhoods like that. There are several on the Forgotten Coast and over around Alligator Point and Destin. But they are very common in the St. Lucie area. There are a LOT of pilots and aviation enthusiasts living in the area. Flight Safety and several smaller flight schools operate out of Vero Beach, Liberty is in St. Lucie County, Embraer is just north in Palm Bay, Piper operates out of Vero Beach. I have several friends who live in fly in communities. My father in law runs a flight school in Iowa, and my sister in law and brother in law are pilots, so it was very convenient for them to fly in to my friends place and tie down there. Saved a fortune in hangar fees. So, if you are a pilot or instructor by profession, it's not pretentious at all. It just comes with the territory.
