"even Jesus had a 12 man recon team"
Just saw that on the news it will take years to fix that

Hey Jack (JAB)...
Not good. I wonder what the environmental impact will be? That's high enough that it will impact a lot of relatively unspoilt water.
I got no style, I'm strictly roots.
I thought that is the one that has had several spills in the past but it has probably been long enough to clear out again. It will have a terrible impact downstream.

Hey Jack (JAB)...
I always considered the little P section at the spur contaminated from previous spills from that plant. This however is more than can be imagined and will have much large impact much farther downstream. Sad about the missing, praying for them and their families

The enviromental impact will be horrific. That is true, but my deeper grief goes out to the men who were killed in this incident and their families. That should be our greatest concern. The enviroment has a way of taking care of itself but this lose of life is all to tragic and will leave a hole for two different families. Our prayers go out for these people.
Romans 10:9-10 KJV
We are very sorry to hear that the two workers died in the accident. Their families will be in our prayers, as well as all people likely to be affected by the contamination of the sewage in the Little Pigeon River and other ripple effects from it.
Unforntunately, these type problems can be devastating on the communities, the local economy, the environment, and the residents of the area. The Lower Little Pigeon downstream might be gone for a long time before its finally cleaned up.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the 2 guys that were swept away and their families.

This is a very sad accident for two-men who were just doing their every-day jobs so citizens can have sewage services. My thoughts and prayers go out to their families and friends.
I was curious about the environmental impact and researched in on the internet. It seems that the river flow rate and temperature will mitigate the oxygen depletion of the spill and it should rebound rather quickly. However; there is a flash effect to the system during an event like this.
Here is a website that simplifies this type of situation.
Hopefully, they will identify why this accident happened to help protect other workers that could be at risk.
