Now it’s Meridian’s turn to have a close inspection of poop processing and products passed into the river.
The Daily Paper reports the EPA has served a warrant on the city, based on testimony of a former employee.
The GUARDIAN has been waiting for this one to drop for a long time. While the Boise River may be meeting “EPA standards” upstream of the 10 Mile Road area, the water quality quickly declines downstream. For years “agricultural runoff” has been blamed. But with 60,000 people pooping in the Meridian sewer system–with some septic tank exceptions–it was bound to pollute our Boise River.
For the last couple of years the river has been at or near the “maximum allowable load” for various pollutants. Perhaps growthophobia is catching.
Kudos and a pat on the backside to the former employee who prompted the poop people to peek at the product.
