WET WIPES CLOG KANSAS CITY PIPES!!!
This crappy story has been all over mainstream media as of late but it's worth a quick revisit . . .
KMBC: Pipe-clogging wipes pose threat to KC sewers
WaPo: Increasingly clogged sewers attributed to popular ‘flushable’ wipes
Daily Mail: I think we're gonna need a bigger plunger: 'Fatbergs' of grease and baby wipes found blocking sewers under streets of Denver
And yes . . . The trending media story is kinda funny and interesting for the functionally illiterate . . . But more importantly . . .
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO KANSAS CITY'S DEFERRED MAINTENANCE AND EPA MANDATE TO FIX SEWERS AND WATER INFRASTRUCTURE?!?!
We're mostly concerned about the toy train and the Downtown hotel right now but don't forget that this topic dominated the election cycle and has now been quickly forgotten as "reform and repair" promises now mostly apply to violent teen flash mobs.
More in a bit . . .
