Business Owner Accused of Dumping Sewage in Water

An Eastern Kentucky businessman is in some serious trouble.
The Attorney General's Office says they caught the owner of a Johnson County septic tank service, dumping raw sewage into the Big Sandy River.

Investigators arrested Dave Bowling for illegal dumping.
Bowling's truck says water, but investigators say he was hauling human waste.

Agents say they videotaped Bowling dumping the sewage in a storm drain that leads to the Big Sandy River.

Investigators say they believe Bowling has dumped a quarter- of- a- million gallons of human waste into the Big Sandy in the last eight-months.
