It’s going to cost $7 million to repair last November’s sewage leaks:
Public Works Spokesman Alvin Wright said he did not know exactly how much sludge entered the bayou in that incident, which happened near the bayou’s intersection with Lockwood Drive in northeast Houston.
The following month, a separate leak nearby dumped about 100,000 gallons of sewage into the bayou.
Both leaks have been plugged, but Wright says more permanent repairs are needed.
You know what would really sell this repair project? If the Houston Arts Alliance uses tax dollars to put some art up around the wastewater treatment facility. There’s precedent!
