Would you swim in what I from now on call The Root Industrial Canal that runs in Racine to Lake Michigan you know the Root River?

One thing maybe to Swim in the River say further up the River say in the area where it runs into Racine County another say in Downtown Racine

After all since since the 1850’s to the 1970’s many companies not knowing better just dumped garbage in the Canal, what all did the Companies once in Downtown Racine just used the Canal as a dumping place for? PCB’s other Cancer causing chemicals?  Again at the time they had no idea is was not a good idea?

What garbage awaits someone silly enough to swim in the Canal? How will we be able to find out?

Myself, thinking that samples could be taken of the bottom and tested, that tell us something would it not?

Would that information be given to the Public? After all if our Canal was filled with really nasty stuff, could you get the mythical Boaters who are demanding Condos along the Canal to truly buy one? Would you?

Perhaps as I was told by others and I believe what they tell me, Ghost Buyers, be the only “real” buyers ? Can you say Point Blue, therefor not get Cancer or kids get Birth Defects?

Should the Canal get dredged so our mythical Boaters can take their boats up the River what would the cost be to dispose of the perhaps contaminated soil? Where would it go? Perhaps a Playground, or a Golf Course?

So many question to be answered.

 

Just wait Waukesha   wants to dump 6 Million+ Gals of “Treated” Sewage a day in the Root  Industrial Canal oh how lucky we are!
