I heard that today's spill didn't contaminate the river at all. I heard it was contained within the confines of the plant. Unless that is yet another spill I am thinking about.

sooo it didtn say it dint get to the river, and didtn say it was contained. the plant is right on the river, it probly got into the storm drain and to the river from there, waiting on more info, but they city is so embarrased its not going to say much more

I agree, the article i read was off wboc's website and it was hard to follow what was actually going on. I closely read the article again and from what I understand they had a leak and contained 1/2 of it and the other 1/2 went to no-where land (ie the river)

Hmmm, and that's in addition to the nitrogen runoff from the fields.
