A Hazmat crew has arrived on scene to stop the milk from running into the sewer, which Tyler police say is not good for the water supply.

Reading is hard.

Well, I guess there's no use crying over it

a tanker of spilled milk turns into a biohazard pretty quickly in the open air...

First thing I thought of for some reason... PEEEEEEEEPS!

If it was raw milk; I'm not surprised they tried to contain it.

So what comes from brown cows?

Well if there isnt enough water flow to keep the milk going downstream all the way to a river the stopped unrefrigerated milk can stagnate and be a health hazard.

Hey there, sideburns. You want some of this milk?

Almost any very large food-substance spill (or to put it another way, bacterial breeding ground) can be a serious health hazard if it isn't cleaned up pretty quickly.

... generally speaking, nothing in a sewer is good for the water supply. If they can deal with human waste, surely they can deal with milk.

Isn't milk a fish kill hazard?

First, the overturned truck came for our corn dogs.

Then it came for our milk

If that motherfarker comes after the beer, I'm getting pissed.

It's likely the HazMat guys were the only ones equipped to clean up 5000 gallons of spilled liquid (of any kind) on short notice. I once spent a Christmas Eve cleaning ox tails off of an interstate.

Storm drains don't deal with human waste, unless you personally make a habit of shiatting in the sewer on a regular basis.

Sometimes older communities do have combined sewer/stormwater systems, but they don't deal with waste particularly well. So it's inadvisable to just let a truckload of milk wash into the drains in any event.

... the quote says "sewer". Sewers carry human waste. Storm drains do not.

You're right. I'm certain that the milk is going to literally run into a sewer line carrying human waste that just happens to be both open and in the vicinity, and that the person writing the article didn't colloquially use the term "sewer" for a storm drain like many people do.

Would you like to continue being a moron? Because it's slow today and I can totally keep this up.

Hi. Kitchen Counselor here, I can help. Sewers that we poop and pee in are called, strangely enough, "Sanitary Sewers", and the waste goes to a POTW or WWTP. Sewers that storm water runs into are called "Storm Sewers" and they typically run directly to a nearby creek without treatment. In big cities the two are often combined (a CSS, Combined Sewer System). But not always. Don't dump milk in the creek.

Milk is actually an oil and very harmful to waterways... but that's just not damn funny!

Yes, it depletes oxygen in the water.

Uhm, aren't they just going to pour it down the drain after they wetvac it up?

Yep. While the EPA officially exempted milk and milk products from SPCC (Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure) rules in 2011, a spill of milk from a tanker or storage facility into an inland waterway must still be reported to the EPA. The fat in milk can coat plants or animals, or congeal on the surface of standing water and impede oxygen exchange. Not to mention the inevitable stench.

/Worked for a company that was contracted to clean up a rail tanker's worth (about 30k gallons) of beef tallow when some idiot failed to close the drain on a hot Texas day. Apparently the aroma was indescribable.

Milk is NOT a clear liquid.  Ask the patient who took a sip of his wife's coffee (with cream) and still has the knee he came in with instead of a shiny new one.
