Tessie, I cannot claim to be an expert on sewage, other than my own lifetime contributions toward creating it. I can however claim to be an expert in oil & gas, with not only the education but also decades of experience in that field. I have noted through time that you continually post faulty information on the industry. I know it is not worth arguing with you, as you are trying to argue technical issues with emotional pleas and your history shows you are quite set in your views. I do hope however that some other readers will at least question your comments, as they are as factually incorrect as any of the propaganda coming out of the "kill the American energy industry so we can have our unicorns and alternative energy" crowd.

TXBuckeye, you do have a point about surface contamination and that's being addressed by this firm as well, I believe. I don't profess to be an expert about this but I'm reasonably well educated about it. Are you? It would seem not.

Tessie, carry on all you want about the evil oil & gas companies, thus confirming your ignorance on the industry. The real risk to the city water supply comes from surface or near-surface pollutants, which of course is dominated by sewage. If everyone in Marietta could just stop all the peeing and pooping the water supply will be much safer. Of course eliminating all the sewage being dumped into the river upstream of the well field area would be helpful too.

Finally, a topic that merits all the potty humor and crap talk on here. :^)

Forgot to say that I'm glad the city officials are being proactive about protecting Marietta's water supply, instead of reactive. Not sure it goes far enough though. Sure, once adopted there's legal remedy, but once the groundwater is contaminated, it's not just drinking water that's at risk. It's the ground itself, the trees, the farm fields. The State of Ohio is selling us out with their ridiculous kowtowing to the gas and oil industries, as evidenced by the passage of numerous laws that gut local and individual control of their land and water. And the voters let it happen by electing fools who have the loudest voices but the weakest arguments. Disgusting. I'd offer a toast to CC but I'm afraid to drink the water!

Why didn't CC just earmark the profits from the Aquatic Center in previous years in a fund specific for the the Recreation Dept.? Instead they transferred the money to the General Fund to be used for all sorts of non-recreation things. I'm not sure Mr. Vukovic actually knows what a budget is.
