And another thing - why is it always referred to as "raw sewage"?There's a cooked variant?
Do you think when The Donald is in Houston he will notice the National Guard cannot use the sewage flooded freeways and will consider it might be a good idea, and cheaper in the long run, not to build critical infrastructure where it can flood?
Candidate for stupid statement of the week,
building hospitals etc where they will flood is not smart
so, if you live in a flood zone, and the hospitals are beyond that, and you have some sort of life-threatening medical emergency. how long do you want to wait for the ambulance to get there, and once there, how long of a ride do you want before you get the needed life saving surgery?infrastructure is placed where it is needed, so that it can be utilized as quickly as needed. and there is a huge difference between a normal flood zone, and the unanticipated storm flood zone.i agree, if a hospital is placed right on the coast, 2 feet above high-tide, then it is in a dumb location. but i personally have never seen that extreme.
