I love sensationalistic journalism ....always using "tons of water" to get a higher shock factor number

5,000 tons of water is only about 1,200 gallons.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53977898

You may love it, but I'm ashamed to see an American flag by your name. What "Murika"?

5,000 tons
x2,000 pounds per ton

= 10,000,000 pounds
/ 8 pounds per gallon

= 1,250,000 gallons

The 5,000 tons figure is for average people like you who don't understand math. 5,000 tons sounds like nothing compared to 1,250,000 gallons or 4,750,000 litres.

Actually in our System it is 5.000.000 Liters but not 4.750.000 Liters,
but it is still Peanuts
(compared to the Initial Release)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 65231260

obfuscating the point.. go back to the press releases with the real amounts instead of debating non-data....
