WAKE UP TO FLOODED KANSAS CITY STREETS THANKS TO OLD AND BUSTED STORM SEWER INFRASTRUCTURE!!!



Let's never forget an unfortunate fact about local life while trying to avoid impromptu inner-city bodies of standing water that are a constant hazard after even a modicum of rainfall...

The City of Kansas City, Mo., has agreed to make extensive improvements to its sewer systems, at a cost estimated to exceed $2.5 billion over 25 years, to eliminate unauthorized overflows of untreated raw sewage and to reduce pollution levels in urban stormwater...

In reality, the total is closer to 5 BILLION DOLLARS and most of that work has yet to be accomplished whilst water rates continue to soar and City Hall remains focused on a development agenda catering to Downtown tourists.

You decide ...

But isn't the smell of raw untreated sewage the mark of every really big big dense diverse urban environment like KCMO?
World class!
And more of those 24 million tourists are boarding 747s right now!

Amazing that the city's own health department would shut down a business for much less, yet KC can not keep its own ducks in order because the irresponsible mayor is off doing coon engineering for his pet projects.

Who needs to update an antiquated sewer system infrastructure when you have a new streetcar system?

^^^ Wildman, we recognize you by your constant criticism. You're not as original as you'd hoped.

These things were to be done years ago and monies appropriated. Yet here again they are just now trying to fix? The profit from the toy train would help a lot to this budget. lol
