A number of authors wrote an article in the Conversation about the poo problem that has hit the increasingly populated Australian Coastlines. The descriptive article compares a number of cities that have experienced an increase in the human population, which has increased the amount of sewage that needs to be treated before it goes out to the Ocean.
I discuss some of the effects of "poopy" water on the environment and on the human population and their drinking water supplies.

Beth Pike and Ray Evrard, from the Salish Shes Podcast, join me today to discuss their most recent episode on Poop...yes, you read that correctly...Poop!
Their episode focused on how Victoria released raw sewage into the Ocean until recently when they decided to build a sewage treatment plant. They started to build the plant because people just north of the city were complaining of the smell and the "white fish." The city of Seattle was also complaining about similar issues. Seattle is quite a distance from Victoria so you can imagine how far the sewage (including poop!) travelled where people still noticed the smell and pollution.
Take a listen to the episode and let me know what you think in the Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
