Doesn't this come up once a year at some park as the epa brings up some report about an amusement park. Last year it was Dorney if I'm not mistaken.

I'd be pissed too. There's not much worse than excess discharge.

Depends on the source of said discharge...

I'm trying to figure out how WoF discharges more than other parks. I know that Prowler's lift is built on a bridge, so maybe the bottom of the chain is dripping grease occasionally, and the Viking Voyager (water ride) goes above a creek several times, but it's not like they are making industrial waste there. I seem to remember that they were fined years ago though, and I think that was before Prowler was added.

There's probably as much oil and grease discharge coming off any WalMart parking lot, and that's before you add the cars.

No... Dorney receives other parks' discharge.
