This bodes well for the future.

Come on, New Orleans, there's no excuse for this. None. Get it together or you'll shoe geeks like Rep. Buyer are right. :
"Money problems at the Sewage and Water Board kept workers from showing up early Thursday morning when the I-10 Mounes underpass flooded with almost four feet of water causing traffic to be rerouted from around midnight until 6 a.m.

The pumping station has eight times the capacity of the previous system

The state spent $25 million to build a pumping station that would drain the railroad bridge underpass, but last night the station sat empty and the pumps remained turned off.

To save money the Sewage and Water Board quit paying workers for coming in on their time off, so when the call was made last night for operators to come in no one showed up."
You spend $25 million on a pump and your forget to turn it on?
