    Jetskiing on Lake Michigan out of Milwaukee

    Had a great time on wed jetsking out of Bender Park in Oak creek, smooth water, nice sun, great day all around, I dont think I will be able to go back for quite some time now, we had a storm of biblical proportions last nite any where from 5 to 7 and a half inches of rain in a few hours in the Milwaukee area, Whats the problem you ask? Well, Milwaukee likes to dump raw sewage into the lake when it rains alot, dont have the precise est yet but it is in the billions of gallons!!! I went down and looked today, what a mess, now with all the FERTILIZER the seaweed is really going to grow, funny fact, we get our drinking water out of that lake too!

    What!?

    How can all the bunny loving, tree hugging eco saviors...ie liberals, allow that?

    What would happen if you had an oil rig out there?

    Thank God, there is a law against oil rigs in the Great Lakes, (at least for now)

    I may be mistaken but was there not a federal mandate a few years back that requires all communities upgrade there storm water sewers to prevent this kind of thing from happening?
    Oh yeah, an oil rig would be a big improvement over sewage as the oil rig would have a local economic benfeit.
