I get annoyed when people say that it's hard to spend money on government construction projects because it takes a lot of time. That's true for some projects. But it isn't true when the project is "digging up the street to replace 100-year-old pipes." I don't know the details of the water systems of all cities, but I imagine the water departments of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Boston would have no trouble spending money quickly and on very legitimate projects.
