If you’ve ever wondered where your water comes from, how it gets there, and what shape those pipes are in, “The Cost of Water | Episode 1 ” opens a five-part digital series giving an overview on our city’s aging infrastructure.
Public Works? The Cost of Our Aging Infrastructure is a months-long project taking you underneath the pavement to tackle the state of our water and sewers. We track the state of highways and bridges in Kansas and Missouri. We take a closer look at our public transit system. And, perhaps most importantly, we convene policymakers and industry leaders in search of solutions.
— The five episodes of Part I, including “The Cost of Our Water,” will be woven together to form one larger story that runs at 7:30 p.m. on March 2 on KCPT. Find other articles on the metro’s infrastructure here.
