Iowa Leads the Way

'Historic' sewers add expenses for cities | | The Des Moines Register: "A state office charged with saving Iowa's history and complying with federal law is forcing cities to spend thousands of taxpayer dollars to determine whether sewers should be considered historic and indefinitely preserved.

The Des Moines City Council, for example, will vote Monday on a plan to spend $27,500 to hire an Iowa City company to evaluate some of its sewers. The study will determine, in part, whether city leaders destroyed history when doing work completed as long as five years ago."

A couple of nice sewer pics at the link.
