Kokosing has been working on the dublin rd blant for years. Now another company will be there "up grade " Wonder what is the bribe percentage?
Yeah, because it would be unnecessary for a municipal utility providing potable water for a million and a half people and the businesses they work at to have more than one improvement project in progress at a treatment plant.

You're one of those idiots who think potable water in cities appears at the tap through magic, aren't you?

Dumbass, Kokosing was doing an expansion and rebuild, so that should have included the uv treatment.

You can't even make a decent fake lawyer, you are an even dumber fake engineer.
Your assertions are false.

Unless you have detailed knowledge of the public utilites bureau's contracts you have no idea whether that was intended as result of budget constraints when Kokosing's contract was entered into, or an oversight.

As always, you think you know it all.

He's more correct than you are. There always seems to be work going on with the water system and the Airport. The way they run things is like building a house on a slab and then deciding you want to add a basement. And with water regs, it gets beyond ridiculous where they incur all these unnecessary expenses to reduce some particle because they found a one in three trillion parts of something.

I call BS - BS that something that occurs at a "one in X trillion" parts is bad for you and I call BS that they can even detect something that microscopic. It's just makework (and waste) for the government.

Likewise with the Airport. How many times are they going to relocate those runways? They just spent $80 million to remodel a terminal they're going to tear down within 10 years. YES, THIS GOVERNMENT SUCKS.

In the professional operation of a potable water supply and distribution system there are always multiple capital improvements being planned, designed, and constructed. Budget constraints, the continuous changing availabilty of federal, state, and local funding streams, and the availability of qualified contractors preclude doing everything at once. There is no possible way that any utility can possibly replace every component of a potable water supply collection, treatment, and distribution system in a city the size of Columbus at the same time.

You don't know what you are talking about either. Having worked in that field for nearly two decades, I have no doubt that I know a little more about how municipal utility capital improvements are planned, designed, prioritized, funded, and constructed than he or you do.

No, you're a reality denier. Do you still believe in the food pyramid? Do you believe in the New Ice Age?(1970's propaganda). Do you believe in world famine due to overpopulation? Do you believe we are running out of oil anytime soon? Do you believe DDT kills birds when one guy had been eating the stuff for 30 year and it hasn't killed him?

Doom and gloom and leftist scams.

No I don't believe that something that occurs in one part of X trillions is going to kill you.

I'm certain that you believe Noah saved all of the animals now on earth by building a boat as big as Bubba's Lake Erie dinghy.

Yes, I do believe that Noah saved all of the animals in his midst when the area around the Red Sea (?) flooded. That was the extent of their world at the time. They had no way to conceive of anything beyond that.

The bible passes down much of the oral history of the humanity. Science is confirming that these events actually took place.

Well, this explains a lot about you.

Link me to a single peer reviewed scientific journal article that concludes that Noah saved the animals in a big boat.

I'd love to read that.

... That’s not to say that scientific explanations of the Great Flood can’t be made responsibly. "It is by no means impossible that the story of Noah's Flood had some actual basis in reality," Landau wrote to Newsweek. "A number of other ancient Near Eastern cultures have similar flood myths."

Geologists from Columbia University have proposed that Mediterranean glaciers disastrously raised the levels of the Black Sea when they melted around 7,500 years ago. At the United States State Department’s Los Alamos National Laboratory, an environmental geologist proposed that a comet crashed near the coast of Madagascar 5,000 years ago, setting off a series of global tsunamis.

“These are two thoughtful and creative scientific hypotheses suggesting natural explanations for the biblical account of Noah’s Flood,” Landau told Newsweek....

They are financially fit, they provide a good value .......... but they still waste a lot of money unnecessarily on these "environmental" projects to eliminate some miniscule thing.

Financial fitness is easy as long as you keep growing because it's a ponzi scheme where incoming residents pay to fix the old stuff that's broken. When you stop growing (and I hope we do -- it's starting to get too big around here), financial fitness becomes a lot harder.
