RE:Danube disaster(Merrimack too!)

Did anyone notice about 2 weeks ago there was a tanker truck crash in either Lowell or Lawrence that caused a gasoline spill of 1500 gallons into our own Merrimack. I looked for the article on the web back 2 weeks ago but couldn't find it so I didn't post. Just great, Benzine Stripers! This same thing happened in Reading, MA (my town) on Rte. 93 right exactly where the Ipswich crosses under. This was 5? years ago and we still have some wells in town closed down. With the overdrawing of the Ipswich, the river dries up every year in the Wilmington/Reading stretches. Dead fish galor. Ya, let's build more 4000 sq. ft. trophy houses for family's of 3! Soak them lawns! We have got to change our ways.
