    California Drought Taking Serious Toll On Aging Sewer System In San Francisco

    California Drought Taking Serious Toll On Aging Sewer System In San Francisco CBS San Francisco

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — California’s severe drought is taking a serious toll on San Francisco’s aging sewer system.
    Some of the city’s 1,000 miles of sewer pipes are more than 100 years old, among the first installed after the Gold Rush.
    The waste was getting dumped into the streets, the streets were getting all muddy, and they thought, let’s do something about that. So, they built these pipes,” SFPUC Assistant General Manager Tommy Moala said.
    I think it's time these ****ing liberals need to pay their fair share for new infrastructure. This bastion of liberalism with 100 year old sewer pipes..........PATHETIC. Don't ever preach to the rest of us about infrastructure again until you set the example.

    Oh... Because of the reason, "There is a funding target date"? What kind of serious reason is that? Oh yea its this kind of reason, "oh crap this amount in 6 years!? Crap, crap, crap! We might have to raise taxes!" (AKA calls for an expansion) which we all know, "**** we have to fund more, we have to raise taxes then increase guberment AKA bad bad bad"

    Oh yea but then again there is a way to fund it, but remember "guberment BAD! Raising taxes on rich BAD!"
    "President Obama’s proposal of a one-time 14 percent tax on nearly $2 trillion of foreign earnings is gaining traction among Democrats and some Republicans as a way to fund infrastructure projects. Major American companies are supposed to pay a 35 percent tax on overseas earnings, but many use a legal loophole that allows them to keep the earnings in other countries indefinitely.
    In Obama’s approach, companies such as Apple, Cisco Systems and Microsoft would have a one-time chance to pay taxes on overseas earnings at the much lower 14-percent tax rate. The proposal would also impose a permanent 19-percent tax on foreign earnings.
    The plan would raise an estimated $238 billion in the coming years to underwrite infrastructure, while an additional $240 billion would come from the current federal tax on gas and other sources. In all, the six-year $478 billion proposal would provide a 33-percent funding increase for major public works projects. "

    And you were blaming this on those big bad liberals, because........????

    Shouldn't a drought NOT AFFECT sewers? I mean... there is no water in a drought, right?

    That's what I thought too, so I read the article.

    You might think that the drought would give the sewer system a break, with not as much water going through it. But, while San Franciscans are sending less water down the drain because of conservation, the same, or more sewage is being sent through the system that isn’t being drained as well as before.
    “It’s an organic material. It breaks down. It creates hydrogen sulfide. That eats up the concrete in the pipes if it sits there long enough,” Moala said.
