The leak was reported Sunday near Wellington and Dorset avenues in Ventnor and caused sewage to "flood" nearby streets, according to police.

Back in high school one of our neighbors had some kind of problem with their sewer line that made it back up from the main into their finished basement. (rec room, etc.)

Of course this happened while they were on vacation, so by the time they got back the basement was full almost to the ceiling. The house stank for weeks even after the basement was gutted.

Yep, and that will drain out into the ocean. Gotta love shore towns that all the rain water collection goes straight into the ocean..

If it went unnoticed why am I reading about it here?

Because Texas farkers need something to divert attention away from the Texas sized cluster-fark that is Texas.

Seriously though once you hit like exit 120 going PW north it smells like a dead animal.

Welp, if it's raw, then put it in a crock pot.

Yes.  And the irony is that the primary component of that odor is the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island & the Aurthur Kill waterway where all of the freight comes & goes.   The Linden Co-Generation plant is another stinky component.
There are still lots of places in NJ where you can get fresh-air and nature but go ahead and keep driving through, citizens of other states.

If anything, it probably improved the place...

There is no immediate health risk, and this does not impact the safety of drinking water.

and that says a lot about the taste of their water...

You mean basically everywhere?  That's what rainwater does.  Either straight into the ocean or straight to a river then to the ocean.

How horrible that rainwater might go into the ocean.
