A million lbs of sewage

If you scroll down and look at Bill Spenny's 10 second video clip of the solids coming out of the drainage pipe it's not too difficult to guess what may have been discharged. The clip shows the discharge water to be pretty clear but with large chunks of solids coming out. Many of you have seen with your own eyes days where the discharge was very dark brown with lots of solids and some days where it's clear with very little solids. So if you take that ten second clip to be an average you might come up with the same number I did.
2 lbs of solids in ten seconds
12 lbs of solids in 1 minute
720 lbs in one hour
17,289 lbs in one day
518,400 lbs in 30 days
1,555,200 lbs in the appx. 3 months this has been going on.
So for you doubters who think this is nothing or a minor incident, just mull over the thought of a million pounds of sewage being dispersed into our canals.
