Criminal Indictment? overhead Super Bowl 2012

The Utility Workers Union to Sponsor Plane Banner over Super Bowl on February 5th, 2012 publicizing United Water Criminal Indictment

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The banner will fly over Super Bowl Village, Lucas Oil Stadium, and downtown Indianapolis from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 5 to promote a UWUA website detailing a 26-count federal criminal indictment pending against the for-profit water utility company.

On December 8, 2010, a federal grand jury issued an indictment charging that United Water and two of its managers tampered with E. coli bacteria monitoring tests at a Gary, Indiana wastewater treatment plant between 2003 and 2008. Prosecutors allege that United Water manipulated the monitoring tests as part of a scheme to reduce its costs for purchasing chlorine, which is used as a disinfectant before the plant discharges treated sewage into a public waterway near Chicago.

United Water and the two managers have pleaded not guilty in the case.
