We ought to be prepared for infrastructure failure
The News editorial, “Alarms are going off,” regarding the area’s aging water infrastructure, encourages me to share a little something that my husband and I make a habit of doing. Every gallon milk jug that gets emptied in our household is rinsed well and then filled with water. We have a space in our basement where we line them up. They pretty much look like a sentinel of soldiers waiting for an emergency. Did you know that it takes five gallons of water to flush a toilet? Be prepared, folks!
