Miller Park Stadium Board announces temporary fix of plumbing problem

"We're feeling confident that we'll have it fixed by opening day," Mike Duckett, the Miller Park stadium district's executive director said Wednesday after further tests confirmed at least one pipe coming from private suite bathrooms was hooked improperly to a storm sewer draining to the Menomonee River.

But Benjamin Benninghoff, a state Department of Natural Resources storm water specialist, said that, if that does not turn out to be the case, the DNR would impose a contingency plan "to ensure there aren't any more discharges to storm sewers."

"We think a big giant diaper over the third base corner oughtta do it."
