Is This Polluted Shoreline Acceptable?

This is the trashy shoreline of Dog River in Mobile Alabama, USA. All the photos are taken in nearly the same place about 100 yards from Dog River Park.

The City of Mobile's Municipal Storm Water System serves as a conduit to propel the litter chunking community's trash into the State's public waterway called as Dog River.

Despite years of complaints about City's MS4 trash being sent to the shorelines of Dog River you can see the result of the City and State's response to my complaints. The shoreline trash, which occasionally is floating in the water is getting denser Year after Year and no one gives a fuck.

What is floating in the public waterways in the City of Mobile's jurisdiction? No one really knows because the Environmental Enforcement Agencies are incompetent and do not care to address pollution complaints.

Is it acceptable for a City to fill wetlands with trash some of which is hazardous to public health and marine life? 

Here are a couple more photos of the wetlands of Dog River.

And all this trash is about 100 yards from Dog River's Spring Clean Up and Fall Coastal Clean Up Zone. That is why I say volunteer clean ups are worthless in cleaning up a polluted waterway like Dog River.
