Welling up at the Springs

Fantastic news - Springs residents will doubtless be holding street parties and fireworks displays in celebration! For the waste spill that flooded a road in the Springs was not raw sewerage, but processed sludge:

"This was not a raw sewage spill. It was a leak from the processed sludge tank due to a human error by the tanker operator. The discharge valve on the sludge tank was not closed properly during the sludge tankering process, resulting in a spill which took place during the Iftar timing in Ramadan at 6pm," a spokesperson said.

Processed sludge - how very delicious! Anyone for a sludgeball fight?

I I recall correctly from my study of construction more than 20 years ago, sewerage is the system of pipes and what-have-you that carries the stuff. Sewage is the actual stuff...
