Cowards!

MWRDGC rarely makes the news. When they do it's usually a flurry of stink, then the virtual walls go up and the issues fall away. Not from lack of interest, but lack of information. Nobody's talking. "Not our fault." The MWRDGC is just a big hole in the ground into which we pour money.

Their name comes up often, but typically goes nowhere. They rule their realm. Nobody dare question or strange things might happen.

Forest Leaves Flood coverage

The TARP or Deep Tunnel was/is all about capacity. Of course, the only time anyone thinks about capacity is AFTER a flood. Were MWRDGC so occupied with the Asian Carp that they took their eye off the ball?

A few years ago Pam Zekman did a series on MWRDGC's secrecy, seemingly unlimited control and their windfall of Homeland Security funding.

The only time they can possibly be vulnerable to inquiry is after catastrophic floodings. Yes, we got a lot of rain. A lot of rain that was piss-poorly handled by MWRDGC. "Sorry, we were full" is not an acceptable answer. But in every story I've read about the event, that's their story and that's where it ends. Take it or leave it? Just let business as usual play on?

i'm assuming the above was the reason our village council showed such confidence on monday night.
we had burke to push the 'it's not our fault, this is bigger than any of us' and the Homeland Security dude to act as tho FEMA is the remedy.
everything else is a mystery? NOT.

It's ugly to see politics play and politicians all but outright declare that it's everyone for themselves. MWRD is answerable to no one? Their multi-billion $$$ empire of grand palaces behind velvet ropes?

What's behind the curtain?
