Journal Sentinel Raises Questions About Water Plant Tour

You don't usually see the word "infiltrated" in a story about water processing plants relating to anything other than leaky pipes.

Which makes it interesting that Journal Sentinel city hall reporter Larry Sandler could put it in a eyebrow-raising story about exactly what an employee working at a firm that partnered in a submission during the now-dead Milwaukee Water Works privatization study was doing during the process inside the Water Works' Linnwood Treatment Plant.

Especially when the terms of the process forbade contacts between bidders and city staff, including water works personnel.

Details, here.

I think the plan is not "dead" yet. It's offically on hold. Milwaukee water has to be a pretty lucrative cash cow for these companies to send spies into the plant.
