Rick,
That certainly makes you think!.
I bet that this isn't the only case where something like this is going on, the only thing is, these guys have been caught.
3000 fish is a fair number of dead fish!.
I say lock the people responsible for this up for a good long while.

Why in the world would someone risk something like this to save a "couple of hundred dollars a year"?

For those of you with a taste for malted beverage, the Rocky Mountain Spring Water place is 50 miles or so UPSTREAM from this incident.

Back in '97, for quite a few months, twice per day, I had to deal with this . (Scroll down to the "Barnyard odor" article.)

Turns out that a nearby building had an illegal sewer hookup, with raw sewage flowing into the storm drainage system of the underground trains. The authorities finally figured out the source when toilet tissue started washing up out of the drains after a heavy rain.

YUCK!!!!
