Letter: McRuin Is All Wet

From Saturday’s front page; “I don’t think that much water (120K gallons/day) was anticipated by Team McEuen.” If that is not a giant red flag I don’t know what is. The Team should have known EXACTLY how many gallons per day this pad would take because it should have been clearly specified/designed/reviewed and implemented. “That was unbeknownst to anyone...” Ooh that makes ya all warm and fuzzy inside don’t it? Can you imagine these boobs building your house? You would turn on a faucet and your neighbor’s toilet would flush. “Due to the popularity of the splash pad...” Y’all did not think that the much hyped park would draw kids to the splash pad when it is 95 flippin degrees out? Why build it? Why waste the electricity or water on it? Let the kids enjoy it since they will be paying for the maintenance on it forever. “...appears to have lower than anticipated soil infiltration rate...”/George Beauchesne, Hauser, letter to the editor, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Izzit just me -- or do some of the most vocal critics of the McEuen Field reconstruction live outside the city limits?
