Arlington's $568 Million Wastewater Treatment Plant in Big Doo Doo
I have a good bud who works at Arlington's almost-new $568 million wastewater treatment plant. According to him, the plant has been in a state of dysfunction since last week's major downpours and things are getting worse. The plant staff can't apparently get the wastewater treatment system under control. All they are apparently able to do is shut off one valve or valves, and turn on another, or others. The alarms have been going off the past few days like in one of those old Star Trek episodes where the Klingons attack the Enterprise. Enough HAZMAT is stored at the plant to blow a crater into Potomac Yards and level Arlington Ridge. It's raining hard again tonight, so hope the plant doesn't blow up, or have to be evacuated because of HAZMAT releases.
