At a time when the list of grave threats imperiling InsolvenCity (and baffling its overmatched leaders) is revealed to include rain, a promising new voice -- the 3MurkyRivers blog -- observes that the precipitating problem might be the thicket of scandal that appears to involve everything (and everyone) associated with the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority.
(In fairness, we note that although the PWSA was unable to prevent an August rainstorm from drowning four people on a paved InsolvenCity street, the PWSA's stormwater pipe was adequate to transport the corpse of a 72-year-old woman from Washington Boulevard to the bank of the Allegheny River.)
The PWSA scarely needs another scandal, and there is no apparent reason to believe any revelation would incline the relevant prosecutors or the Ravenstahl administration to address the problems at PWSA, but has anyone attempted to connect dots between this story and the PWSA?
