Dumping Waste Water on Roads: It's Just Not Right!

The photographer wrote:
The above picture is of a Hawg Hauler tanker truck dumping waste water on Blake Ridge. The license number of the truck is AF65647 and the truck number is 125. We have seen many incidents of this type in the past, but this is the first time we were able to get a picture. You can see dark stains on the road and in the ditch from this type of activity. The picture was taken on September 27, 2010.

Yes, I can vouch for the law being that they can spray wastewater on roadways AND have seen it first-hand. Also, I'll never forget seeing a tanker truck demolish a family's front garden in two seconds when it went off the road by mistake.I believe that it is not only true that rural areas are disrespected by the gas companies, but also true that gas companies tend to think that if something is not seen, it never happened and, if it's obvious that it DID happen, it wasn't the gas company's fault. Who knows? Maybe that family buried a gigantic magnet in that garden which attracts all metal trucks. In fact, if they DIDN'T bury a gigantic magnet which caused the accident, let them PROVE that they didn't!
