It's interesting to see how underfunded the infrastructure is. Considering that people are paying for it on a monthly basis. Legit billion dollar utility companies.

Even if counties or the federal government raised taxes to fix it, there’s zero doubt that only 10% of the increase would actually go to the repairs. The rest would be diverted to other projects or politicians pockets.

This stinks BTW, my chlorine experience in the drinking water on the road trip through the USA, makes so much more sense now! Just remember, the right of clean drinking water has become a human right... So......

This topic is an example of what I call " moronic tendency", The evolutionary human mental development in which we do the easy thing in order to expend the least energy to survive. But today we suffer from that laziness that is a part of our evolutionary makeup. If we want a modern society we must make greater strides to evolve beyond our caveman evolution ary past.

This is just ridiculous. The people who ignored the health and safety of the public need to be charged with a crime. Not the current people who inherited this problem, but the ones who accually ignored it 20 or 30 years ago.

The water system has not been managed after the Supreme Court decision on water rights was ignored. The water resources management does not have an established zero point. They can't improve until there is actually no water.

In Seattle, Washington a little more than twenty years ago they were still finding wooden logs hollowed out as water pipes... I don’t know if they have replaced them all or if they still find them.... but the old cedar logs last longer than iron... unfortunately the cedar logs are also healthier than the replacements which were subsequently used nationally. It would behoove people to recognize that military industrial complex is reliant upon the economy and that the economy is reliant upon the infrastructure. The ability to turn plowshares into swords as needed and necessary is second nature in a functioning system. However in failing empires the inability to recognize the time to store the weapons and create plowshares rather than swords frequently has preceded empires collapsing... the casting about seeking to find someone else to blame while not addressing the pressing issues of the day in favor of distractions, entertainments and misrepresentation of reality is a historically recognized phenomenon.

😆 Thank you for making this horrifying news a little bit funnier with your silly, yet brilliant solution for politicians to celebrate a new sewage pipe, and for pointing out the obvious catch about black representation we never thought about, no one was talking about the water supply. That would be really hilarious to celebrate better water infrastructure by taking a dump at City Hall, but I was really thinking we could celebrate it by showing a cleaner sink to give you a cup of cleaner water.

I just. Don’t understand how this can happen. Like the main function of state is to provide and maintain public infrastructure? You can’t have economic growth and a healthy workforce without roads, electricity and water, so how is that not an apolitical agenda?? And why is funding a federal issue? In other countries’ water and waste infrastructure is maintained by municipalities and paid for by local consumers through water bills and taxes. *screams into the void*

Ursprünglich haben die Sioux mit dem conterminierten Wasser Probleme gehabt. Danach wurde ich jetzt von der Navaho Nation über das gleiche Thema informiert. Wenn Pipelines brechen und das Oil in das Grundwasser sickert wird dieses Wasser unbrauchbar und ist dann zum trinken und auch für vieles mehr, nicht mehr zu gebrauchen. Darum muss eine Lösung gefunden werden. Die Gesundheit der dortigen Bevölkerung ist sonst nicht gewährleistet. Man kann ihr soetwas nicht mehr zumuten. Clear Water is life. Honour and Respekt for you all. Gemeinsam sind wir stark und erreichen was wir wollen. Gary Kicking Wolf Germany 🐺 💕💖💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕

Es nützt auch nichts wenn man das Wasser von oben absaugt. Warum laufen die Pips überhaupt durch die Gegend der First Nation? Sie sollten dort installiert werden, wo die Nutznießer wohnen, denn sie haben ja auch die Vorteile davon. Wenn ich meinen Garten mit Abwasser düngen will, stelle ich die Anlage auch nicht auf das Grundstück meines Nachbarn. Sondern in meinen eigenen Garten. Gary Kicking Wolf 🐺 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖 💕 💖
