I was always led to believe that sewer lines had to be water tight so they don't leak. That works both ways so if a line doesn't leak how can "contaminated" water get in the sanitary sewer? I guess I too am stupid. Now if the lines are not allowed to leak why does the EPA have anything to do with this. Doesn't the county health department have a say in this? A lot of buck passing going on here.

It does not matter how much school you have, It you don't have common sense. And a statement like that show she does not have that. She needs to be vote out next round... I would like see a high school drop out in office with common sense than her in there

This has surpassed pathetic !! Someone erred in disconnecting this sewer line in the first place! The fact that,"The environmental firm performing testing at the dealership on BP's behalf told her(Mrs. Mullens)that preliminary indications are that any remaining contamination is minimal and should not be a concern.",should carry some weight in this decision. Who was responsible for the remediation, in the first place? Is the contractor responsible for mistakenly disconnecting the line, or did they receive incorrect information from the village? If the connection had been made in the first place, would it be subjected to EPA scrutiny, after the fact? The Mullens should not be responsible for the mistakes of others. If the fault lies with the contractor, hired by the village, who severed the line, then the village should hold them responsible! Someone needs to step up and get this done, and quit passing the buck.
