  1. Barbara Folger Says:

    Oil tanks by the river: Of course we must remember that historically river transportation was the reason commerce was set up by rivers. Because we know the potential for tank failure, we must be vigilant in regulating them. I hope all states put in regulations to protect our precious water.
