Water Watchdog Report

What: Detergent Smell
Where: Bennington Tributary, near intersection Bennington Drive and Ellsworth
When: 2015-05-22 at 12:30 PM
Reported By: Anne Vorce
Additional Details:

Reported to DEP via Water WatchDog email. Similar to previous pollution events, which were caused by WSSC subcontractor Civil Construction, which is modernizing our water main system in the neighborhood. Stormdrains should be filtered wherever this sort of work is being done. Detergent smell continues and is worrying. Alot of sudsy foam recently on the Creek. Hard to tell if natural or manmade.

I keep smelling detergent on the street. A fellow dog walker said she walked through suds recently. There is more foam/suds on the Creek than usual.
