AOC WILL always be fun to poke at, because she's stupid.
Actually it's the plastic tampon applicators that are a huge problem! I was at a treatment plant in Longview TX and the ponds were covered in them. Very disruptive to the facility. Additional, it's grease that's a problem. If I recall correctly, a quart of grease can smother 5 surface acres of water. That's why they use filter presses to try to trap the grease. I was a waste water treatment plant engineer at one time.
