That's A Bit Of A Problem

They'll all break before then. Enjoy the flooding.
But in recent years, L.A.'s elected leaders have been unwilling to hike water rates enough to fix them more rapidly. As it stands, the city-owned Department of Water and Power is on track to replace main water lines only once every 300 years.

I have no idea if this is a well-run authority generally or if rate hikes, as opposed to fewer fingers in the candy jar, are necessary, but those pipes don't last 300 years.
