What i don't understand is why a retired contractor would be boasting about their areas non-comformance to a health and safety issue?

I live in both states (MA and TX) and I retired from the field for $$$ reasons. I do it on the side and that is it; not 60 Y/O to boot! I retired from THAT field but still working.
My point is that a backflow, good or bad, most times is not checked and people (aka customers) really do not care. Grass green, good to go.
Yes it COULD be a health issue (extreme but okay) but from the people in my 2 states, most city people do not even know the laws, do not talk to other depts etc. Ex, in MA I had a business operation issue (outside local laws), mayor said there are not laws about this, building dept stated it was a local police dept issue and had laws. So I called PD and they said it was a building issue.
Just saying ya, there are laws but enforcement is lacking, bigtime, in my live in states. Laws are great when people follow them.
