Tragedy: $500 Million Probably Won't Solve Kansas City's Persistent Water Problems
TKC NOTE: Here's a bit of local testimony regarding out old and busted pipes in Kansas City that may or may not get fixed after a $500 MILLION Water Bond approval . . . Remember that Kanas City actually needs about $5-6 BILLION worth of water and sewer infrastructure improvements. Here's the neighborhood testimony is rather important . . . Check it:
Water Plan (Or Lack Thereof)
This is the sign posted along the trolley track trail for several years.
No plan in the water dept's multiphase plan to remedy it. Just let it run into the proposed catchment (cess pool/cistern) at 85th and prospect.
This sign was near 85th St about Oak. The name of this creek is called Boone Creek. It runs from Waldo (now covered along trolley trail) comes out about 84th & Main (were it always smells in the summer), takes an easterly turn after 85th St. This creek is the one behind the old Strouds an BB's Lawnside BBQ.
I say "was" because it disappeared after the trolley talk started.
