Double standard?

To the Times of Ti:

I am wondering why contractor Pat Armstrong got fined $500 for allegedly mudding a part of Burleigh’s Bay. He was repairing a water line on the roadside part of a cement wall that borders the lake.

Burleigh’s Bay has always been known for its beautiful bullhead fishing; when the wind blew right and caused a big roil in the bay. The muddy water that the DEC fined him for was actually caused by this roil. Now, on the other side of the coin, the State of New York is allowing tons and tons of sediment to go into Lake George via Northwest Bay Brook, approximately 300 yards upstream from a boat launch site next to the Northwest Bay Brook that crosses Route 9N in the town of Bolton Landing. Why isn’t the state being fined?
