Do I recall a Californian being prosecuted by the EPA a few years ago for piddling in a large reservoir that is stocked with millions of fish and myriad aquatic birds and mammals, all doing their business in the water - which is presumably filtered and chemically cleaned up before it enters domestic plumbing systems in downtown LA or wherever...?

Certainly do recall Steve Coonts talking to various small airfield owners he visited during his aerial odyssey in a Stearman, about having to dig up their fuel tanks to check for contamination, etc, etc, all at the sort of cost that would put them out of business.
