  • Description

    BACKGROUND DOPE ON THIS STORY (LIFTEN FROM NARRATION TRACK). ABOUT FOUR WEEKS AGO, SOMEBODY DUMPED A HALF-GALLON OF ENDIRIN, AN EXTREMELY POWERFUL DDT-TYPE PESTICIDE, INTO THE LAKE..APPARENTLY PURELY AN ACT OF VADALISIM. THE PESTICIDE KILLED EVERYTHING IN THE LAKE. THE POISON IS SO POWERFUL THAT THE FEDERAL GOVT BANNED ITS USE TWO YEARS AGO. THE LAKE COULD NOT BE DRAINED OFF SINCE THE POISONOUS WATER WOULD CONTAMINATE THE OHIO RIVER. TO REMOVE THE POISON, THE OHIO CONSERVATION DEPT AND THE FEDERAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY BUILT A PUMPING AND FILTRATION SYSTEM, RECIRCULATING THE LAKE WATER THROUGH FIVE TONS OF ACTIVATED CARBON TO REMOVE THE POISON. THE PURIFICATION PROCESS WILL TAKE 90 DAYS, ACCORDING TO THE NARRATION. MAN COMMENTING ON FILM NOT IDENTIFIED, BUT ASSUME HE IS OFFICIAL WITH THE OHIO STATE CONSERVATION DEPARTMENT.
