It seems that "10,000 gallons of water are being trucked daily from Cambria to Santa Maria as part of a clean-up of ground water tainted by a gasoline additive."
Oh, really? 10,000 gallons a day? And the Santa Maria residents were never informed of this?
The article goes on to say that MTBE "can cause flulike symptoms and has been suspected -- but not proven -- to cause cancer."
Evidently "no public review or City Council approval was required for Santa Maria to take the MTBE-tainted water. The city has an approved program [Tin Soldier: By whom?] that allows 'us to accept all kinds of things we can treat,' including gunk from other areas, said Santa Maria head of Public Works, Paul Karp."
Again, who approved this?
One Tin Soldier
