FLUSH CREEK WATERSHED MOMENT!!!
Once again, for the record and for the cheap seats . . .
THE POOP CONTENT IN KANSAS CITY'S BRUSH CREEK IS TOTALLY DISGUSTING AND JUST ANOTHER SIGN OF THIS TOWN'S OVERALL FAIL THAT HASN'T CHANGED MUCH NO MATTER WHO HOLDS ELECTED OFFICE!!!
Nevertheless . . . There is still talk of improving the tragic situation. Or at least swirling it around.
Take a look:
Options for Brush Creek Near Bruce R. Watkins Drive
The website worth a look:
The Brush Creek Watershed
Description . . .
"This multi-purpose project includes a wide array of ecosystem restoration measures along Brush Creek in the vicinity of Bruce R. Watkins Drive, along with compatible flood risk management, recreation considerations, and water quality improvements. In particular, the hydraulic conditions at the southbound exit ramp bridge will be evaluated to identify flood mitigation related opportunities that may be combined with nearby ecosystem restoration and compatible recreational improvements (e.g. trail connections).
LOCATION AND EXTENTS
"The project is located along Brush Creek in the vicinity of Bruce R. Watkins Drive in Kansas City, Missouri. It begins between Bruce R. Watkins drive and Prospect Avenue and extends upstream to Woodland Avenue, a stream length of about 2100 feet. Most activities would be located between Swope Parkway and Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard."
Again, there's no specific talk of fixing the poop or sewer run off but it seems like a nice way to waste more cash in the river of feces at the center of Kansas City. Natch.
