Mr. Issler, you are trying to tell us the color white is black? I will give you credit for confirming that storm water is leaking into the system. However what is more damaging to the treatment plant is the fact that sea water is also entering the system. This happens each time the tide is high or whenever the island gets high water from a storm (we already know our storm drains are inadequate). Why does this happen? Because the high water causes pressure forcing the sea water into the manholes and the saturated sand allows the sea water to have a free run to the breaks in our pipes. As for the rest of your claims, I will take the time to explain this in the simplist possible terms becuase you mistakenly believe you are smarter then Mr. Neylon. If the pipe has a crack, is broken from pressure, digging, root developemnt or seperated from an adjoining pipe it will leak or leach the material it was designed to contain. Common sense (and the law of gravity) tells us that when fluids flow downhill they will take the path of least resistance. We have a gravity system on Marco. The material you flush from your house flows downhill to the nearest lift station. If the pipe has been compromised in some way, your excrement will settle in that compromised portion of the pipe and pollute the surrounding soil. As more water comes washing down the pipe, your excrement will slowly but surely find the lowest point (the break) in that pipe, accumulate and seap into the soil and find it's way into our water table. Sorry to be so discriptive but your contribution above indicates I have to make the extra effort in order to convince you that your uninformed and not very well thought out statements are damaging our enviornment.
