I remember seeing them doing that during the day and just shaking my head... like if they are going to break the law you'd think they'd try to be sneaky about it

Aware the dumping is old but the suit isn't. There was some debate on the outcome and if what was being pumped into the river actually was cause for action.

The AG would not get involved if there wasn't a cause for action. Pretty sure they'll be paying some hefty fines.

Seems silly to me. Out west when they were tearing out old silted in dams, at first they made a huge effort to stabilize or truck out the silt. Thousands of dump trucks to dump the silt in some landfill. Then they came to their senses and realized they could just let the river flush it downstream and nothing bad happened.
A little silt never hurt a river. What do people think the bottom is made of?

^what are u talking about, the environmental standards of 1930? I think we’ve moved on from that era bc environmental science shows that silt is supposed to accumulate slowly over time. When it’s dumped by humans it kills plants first, then fish. The law is the law, and if it’s not enforced in one case, there’s nothing to stop the next person from dumping. Also, doesn’t it just strike you as shitty to dump in a river? I mean, have some respect for yourself and others.

Thank you! Not to mention there's much more than just "silt" in that slurry. Definitely heavy metals, chemicals, and god knows what else that was just being poured into a river that the city has been trying to revive from an industrially instituted coma for the last two decades.

Cool

They were pumping it out of the bottom of a cassion, probably safe to say there isn't much at that depth in terms of contamination and the Chicago river at this location isn't that polluted. It's not like the town where I grew up that had a series of old Mill ponds along a creek. A factory decided to dump PCBs into the floor drains the led directly into the top mill pond and so every single pond was laden with PCBs all the way down to bedrock. They literally diverted the river through giant steel tubes and broke out the CAT mining shovels and took it all away. Just recently they dicovered yet more contamination down stream in the park and rapids we used to play in... Literally dug up the whole Park and pumped the sludge through giant bladders allowing it to settle and mix with enzymes that broke the PCBs down...

Just goes to show that even in "small town America" you can be letting your kids play in a superfund site...
