    Can anyone tell me why a guy dumping gas in a sewer puts you on the EPA most wanted list? Why is that a felony on the first place?

    What I want to know is why anyone would dump perfectly good gasoline in the sewer.

    Dumping 32 gallons of gasoline into a storm drain is a felony? What the fuck??

    And to think how much law enforcement effort is going to track this guy down while Roman Polanski runs around Europe a free man.

    Why would he dump gas in a drain? Don't you care about your drinking water? Don't you want the cost of water treatment to go down? After all, the more shit you dump in the water, the more treatment is required.
    But even with all of that, it still begs the question... Why would he dump gas down a drain? Shit's pretty expensive to be doing that.

    Because storm sewers drain into rivers.

    Where did I say it should be ignored? What I want to know is why is it a federal offense that deserves being included on the most wanted list? Do you think that the city might actually have a law that prohibits people dumping gas into their water supply?
