Celebrate Kansas City 100-Year-Old Pipes



A less than inspiring clip from KC's Water Department:

"Imagine digging a tunnel underneath the Missouri River with a pickaxe. That’s how KC Water built its first tunnel to send treated water to homes and businesses south of the Missouri River. "

That's a nice way of saying that this town still depends on ancient water infrastructure and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

More in a bit . . .
