Its sad, but was predicted by many. The reallysad thing is the bay has just sort of recovered with a project replanting of sea grasses that died off and then freeze that killed so many fish several years ago. Now they are now pumping it into the bay in an effort to perhaps prevent imminent total failure of the dyke and flooding of homes and the surrounding land which would them require more expensive cleanup.
Its basically man made ponds with raised above ground dykes, lines with a plastic liner. The Liner is failing or has a tear in it. Now my engineering mind wonders why since they know its leaking why they can't simply spread a new section or complete new liner over the old, the water pressure would seal off the hole, at least temporarily while the drain off the contaminated water and deliver it to the owners of the old phosphate mines owners homes. Those ponds have been glowing green for years.
Where is that guy who stuck his finger in the dam and saved all the people ?
