Something smells awful

A question to the local blogosphere. Has anybody hiked the section of the Rivanna Trail behind the UVa Law School recently? I was walking there with the dogs today and they came out of the water covered in what smells like fuel-oil/diesel fuel. Alice called the the ASPCA hotline and for the sum of $60 they said the dogs should be fine. I have washed Liza twice now and she still smells. Anybody have any ideas on where this pollutant is coming from? I notified the Albemarle County of Department of Environmental Health and informed the police (called non-emergency dispatch.)

    It’s usually contained on campus, but I figure the heavy rains have washed down some waste from the grease-balls up at the law school.
