Leaks and losses form an "invisible river"
November 17, 2009

The city of Pittsburgh is not unlike many American cities and towns in that it has a water system in need of extensive repairs and upgrades. A recent article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette declared that the city's water system leaks "an invisible river" as it loses 1.5 gallons to leaks and free users for every gallon it sells to a paying customer. The city's independent public water authority has a debt burden larger than that of the city government itself. While Pittsburgh may be in a more dire situation than many communities, it's not alone in having expensive obligations ahead for capital repairs and upgrades -- without a lot of money to carry those out.
