Another Sign of Our Crumbling Infrastructure
On Wednesday the District of Columbia’s “Water and Sewer Authority” warned residents to boil their water due to a power outage at a pumping station. Pretty amazing when people in a nation’s capital have to boil their water.
Today, the Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs notified its employees that its headquarters building,
…located at 810 Vermont Ave., NW are CLOSED. Telework-ready employees must follow VA policies.
Due to an apparent collapse of the DC sanitary sewer line connected to the building, for the safety and welfare of employees, 810 Vermont Ave., NW in Washington, DC is CLOSED in accordance with direction from Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
Poetic justice, isn’t it, that these things are happening in Washington? Maybe (not holding my breath) they’ll spur our inept leaders into taking some action.
