Mod: Big Sierra Madre article in today's issue of the Pasadena Star News that pretty much nails it. The problems here are far more complex than what most cities are facing.
Mod: For the rest of this article (and to view Bruce Inman's video) click here. It goes into the damage done to Sierra Madre's 80 year old pipes by chloramines, the massive amount of leaks, how this has affected the city's ability to reach its state mandated water usage goals, potential huge fines, plus a lot more.
Including some interesting funding questions.
One thing that this article does not explore is how it all got this bad, but then nobody has done that. Ancient pipes and all. That would require naming the names of people who now prefer to remain out of sight. Something they have successfully been able to do so far.
Be sure to check out the video. Is your water clear now?
