The Mysterious Sewer Blob

The City of Lewiston, Maine, got an unusual sewer problem: its main sewer line is being clogged by a mysterious 50 to 60 foot (15 to 18 m) long doughy blob!

City crews discovered the clog earlier this month after responding to complaints of blocked sewer lines downtown. Jones said crews opened a manhole at the Bates Street intersection and saw the clog - an oozing, white blob that looks like uncooked dough.

"We've tried punching through it, but each time we do, it just oozes back over the hole," he said. "It really looks like dough."

My wife does Maine wastewater engineering work, she says it's grease and bakery waste. I'm not allowed to name the bakery that it's from.
