Scenes from an American Disaster: Part 1

Have you ever washed your keys?
Have you ever washed a roll of Tums?  A $20 bill?  Your wallet perhaps?  Your cellphone?
Now take your children's drawings, your favorite shirt, your  Drug Free Schools certificate from when you were 8, 25% of your family photos at random, your tools and cleaning supplies, and wash them, not with soap, but with a brimming cup of manure (you can still set the washer to hot though)... then you begin to understand what a flood is.

Christopher Lotito is a member of the Pequannock EnvironmentalHistoric District, and Flood Control Advisory Commissions as well as the author of  "Torrent," a book about flooding in the region.  Lotito's personal mission is to reduce new taxes, drastically reduce flooding, and preserve more green spaces for our children.  Christopher Lotito Profile
