Except someone did. Seven days before the spill.
Why did he predict this would happen?
The "grand experiment" in my opinion will fail. And guess what (EPA representative) Mr. Hestmark will say then?And it was in a dead-tree publication, no less!
Gee, "Plan A" didn't work so I guess we will have to build a treatment plant at a cost to taxpayers of $100 million to $500 million (who knows).
Reading between the lines, I believe that has been the EPA's plan all along. The proposed Red & Bonita plugging plan has been their way of getting a foot in the door to justify their hidden agenda for construction of a treatment plant. After all, with a budget of $8.2 billion and 17,000 employees, the EPA needs new, big projects to feed the beast and justify their existence.
