Galeria Mall pumps water into Charles River

Security guards hose during draining of the basement of the Galeria Mall this morning, Dec 12, 2006, while petty shoplifters were making up excuses at the court house less than two blocks away. Traffic in the area was snarled during the morning due to water main break, which left waist/chest high water in the basement.

I observed the hose running through the bushes, and when I inquired as to where the drain was, I was informed they were dumping the water into the "river." More questions produced silience.

I wandered down to the river, where I was informed that they had obtained a permit to drain the water that flooded the basement into the Charles River. Asking who issued the permit, produced more silience.
