FW: Mercury Videos and Alligator droppings!!

Have they consider composting the poop and selling it as exotic
fertilizer/mulch rather than running it into a treatment plant?  It will
sure keep dogs away from your favorite plants.  The NC Zoo sells Zoo Doo and
the Victoria Zoo sells Zoo Gro. Alligator poop seems to be sufficiently
exotic.  Sounds like an interesting gift shop item.  Never underestimate
what the American public will buy. I've attached a couple of references.

Unique combination hey?
Just a note to advise that as of today, I will have sent out all of the free
Mercury videos requested by members of this list service. If you do not
receive your video by December 18th, contact me via email and I will check
list. Will send another if necessary.
Also I have a unique problem for the more creative among us.  A question on
how to clean up alligator poop! (smile)
Here's the "scoop" ( stop!!!) 
We have a client facility that raises 3000-4000 alligators a year for hides
and meat.  The growth pens are washed out several times a week resulting in
slugs of highly concentrated wastewater.  The treatment plant does a fair
on reduction of BOD and TSS.  The facility discharges to surface waters in a
nearby ranch canal. The discharge has 300 BOD, 300 Ammonia and 60 total
Phosphorus.  We evaluated the discharge and gave them a 2.0 Ammonia and 5
limit, which they say they cannot meet. We want the discharge to meet Class
III surface water quality standards (Rule 62-302.530 FAC).
All (serious or amusing) suggestions will be greatly appreciated. The best
responses will be shared with all.
Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays everyone.
