Flooding and aging infrastructure is more difficult to keep clean

Flooding and aging infrastructure is more difficult to keep clean

On this West Morning West, heavier rain events have increased stress on aging water infrastructure in Kentucky, and this week we hear another installment from the Inside Appalachia program on breastfeeding.

Returning to work after birth can be difficult, no matter how parents choose to give their children food. Roxy Todd has this story about how she affects breastfeeding moms.

Approximately 97 percent of Kentuckians have access to clean water, but they are similar to systems in West Virginia, the infrastructure that makes it possible to aging and need to be repaired. The American Association of Civil Engineers reports that Kentucky needs about $ 15 billion to upgrade its drinking and wastewater infrastructure. In part one of a two-part series, Becca Schimmel from the WKYU member station looks at the impact of flooding on houses and the people rely on them.
