Baltimore:
Water main breaks

Dec 1, 2008

Winter blew into Baltimore Monday November 17. Sure enough that night, two main water main breaks erupted. Traffic had to be re-routed during rush-hour morning traffic. What a mess!

It can be predicted this winter that water main breaks will pop up all over the city. WHY? Cold temperatures cause aging infrastructure to rear its ugly head.

SOLUTION? Hire more city workers to repair and replace pipes. They"d have a paycheck to buy essentials. It would improve the economy. And there"d be fewer traffic hassles.

Makes sense all around.
