Bigstar303 reading must not be your strong point or did you miss the link showing past violation for Boardmans treatment plant. You also failed to respond to the fact that septic systems in Boardman contribute to this issue. This is a countywide issue you simple minded fool how hard is that for you to understand. The media and you would like everyone to think this is 100% the fault of the CSO issue in the City of Youngstown when the samples taken all along that water shed shows there are very high readings throughout. Maybe you need to turn down your amp or put in some ear plugs because you can't hear a word I have been saying. As for the real evidence it is already in and the facts stand the highest readings are south of the Boardman treatment plant. Read that as a County issue,

Bigstar303 can you explain why the E. coli reading was in the 4000's in the area of Calla road and Western Reserve road. That sewage from Youngstown sure did travel a long ways upstream. Milliken and Skolnick can you explain why you are not telling the whole story.

Bigstar in my posts I have never said Youngstowns CSO's did not contribute to the major part of this issue. I have on the other hand pointed out that there are multiple sources of contaminants entering these waterways. I have to laugh when you say that the E Coli can't travel three miles downstream from the plant and at the same time it traveled about the same distance from Newport to Glacier. There are failing septic tanks all over Boardman that contribute too this issue also. As I have clearly stated there are multiple sources of contaminants and Boardman and the County are part of the trouble for these waters, maybe you are just too thick too understand that.Upstream tests south of Newport are elevated, explain that.

Bigstar300You would do good to maintain your silence until you understand things a little better.

303 does that refer to your weight Anthony? If It does I think you might be off by about 100 pounds.

SCADA systems are only as good as the cleaning schedule of the sensors. UV lamps get deposits on them that needs to be removed on a regular basis. Probes along the order of turbidity, Ph., D.O., Cl2,So2, etc. all need cleaned on a regular basis or they will not work correctly. A fouled probe can show the exact same reading for weeks on end until it is cleaned. So to say that your SCADA has not detected any excursions from the EPA limits is singing to the choir because you can be in violation but as long as the SCADA says your good to go the EPA is satisfied.Or am I wrong, maybe you can enlighten us.
