When that snow melts isn't it going to turn into water too? Should God be fined?
JeffT, just to show how FOS you are, I also have a bottle of "stuff" that was illegally dumped. It may contain any number of unknown or unreported fracking chemicals or it may be "flow back water" that also may contain many different chemicals and compounds.
If you believe it is the same as melted snow, how about taking my challenge? YOU come over and drink what I have in the bottle, and I will drink the same volume of freshly melted snow. You can put your mouth where your rhetoric is?
You seem to have faith in what illegal dumpers are putting into our environment, and I would prefer the melted freshly fallen snow.
AND besides, EVEN IF it were pure, clean water he was dumping, IT WAS STILL ILLEGAL for him to dump it along the road above a stream without a proper permit!
And here is a bit of advise for Mr Lewis, Ryan and other concerned citizens who want to help protect our state and our homeland ..... ALWAYS CARRY A DIGITAL CAMERA! Wherever you go! 24/7!
AND for under $20 you can buy a digital meter that measures Total Dissolved Solids or TDS, and that will tell you instantly if you found dumped fracking or "flow back" or "produced" water, as it will be "off the scale" high in TDSes!
Some of the "water dogs" who measure pits, and streams are armed with digital cameras, TDS meters, and a GPS units (to document the exact location).
WE need a lot more people like Mr Lewis out there!
And JeffT ....... You my friend can carry a cup with you at all times and when you see a suspicious dumping of a fluid along the road you can stop and take a drink of it! LOL! Since you seem to think it may be as clean as the driven snow! LOL!
