Excellent documentary. Show's that LaCrosse is not another Minneapolis. In Minneapolis if they get one inch of rain the raw sewage is dumped right into the Mississippi. They have been doing this for over fifty years, and are really doing nothing to change it. The Mississippi is filthy right from the start. Please write your legislators to get that corrected. Ron Kind has known about it and has done nothing but talk.
