A pressured sewer main broke last Thursday at Piscataway Treatment Plant in Accokeek, Virginia outside Washington, D.C. So for nearly nine hours, at least 3.3 million gallons of raw sewage flowed into Piscataway Creek. There is no way to contain the sewage in the creek, which is a tributary of the Potomac River.

In other words, the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission has not maintained its pipes and has created a hazardous situation for people. And then it increases what it charges us! Where did the money go?
