Who Pays To Hose Away The Blood?

Like me, you've probably seen TV footage of firemen hosing down streets in the aftermath of car crashes and shootings, presumably washing away the blood.

Each time I see that happening, I wonder about the implications of washing all of that 'stuff' down into our cities' gutters and sewer systems, and also about the cost (and who pays).  According to THIS story in the New York Daily News this morning, the cost in NYC is $50, and the victims' families are billed for it.
