Cruise ship discharge investigated

I am saddened to know that our waters are being polluted due to lack of judgment. We did not hear what had happened to the person who spilled the sewage into the waters.

Also, I was in Cancun/Cozumel, Mexico, and was told by local divers that they no have control over the cruise ships dumping their sewage into their Mexican waters, the very same cruise ships that come into Alaska waters. So over the years, the underwater caves that are so beautiful are very toxic with e-coli bacteria suspected.

So, I am coming to the same conclusions, we need to have very strict penalty fees, not by federal standards, which are nothing. How would you like it if I came by your place and I decided to dump waste on your front lawn and not be charged for it?
