And, by “shit”, well, um,
San Francisco’s big push for low-flow toilets has turned into a multimillion-dollar plumbing stink.
Skimping on toilet water has resulted in more sludge backing up inside the sewer pipes, said Tyrone Jue, spokesman for the city Public Utilities Commission. That has created a rotten-egg stench near AT&T Park and elsewhere, especially during the dry summer months.
I think you can figure out what the “sludge” mostly is. Being a Dodgers fan, I’m not surprised that it seems to be near where the San Fran Giants play, but, well, it’s a good thing the city hasn’t spent $100 million over the past 5 years to the sewer system and sewer plant, partly because of the odor or something…..they did? Damn.
Now officials are stocking up on a $14 million, three-year supply of highly concentrated sodium hypochlorite – better known as bleach – to act as an odor eater and to disinfect the city’s treated water before it’s dumped into the bay. It will also be used to sanitize drinking water.
That translates into 8.5 million pounds of bleach either being poured down city drains or into the drinking water supply every year.
Of course, some people have a problem with this plan to fix the plan that was to have fixed the low flow toilet plan. Double of course, no one is thinking “hey, maybe we should just go back to regular toilets, because people tend to flush low flow toilets multiple times and use more water anyhow.”
BTW, that “big push” was by government decree.
