Robbins Water Tower

Robbins, which suffers from a water system where parts date back as far as the Great Depression, has landed a major state grant to update and improve the delivery network of pipes.

The grant, exceeding $4 million, was awarded last week through the state Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Water Infrastructure as part of the federal government’s coronavirus relief aid package for distressed communities.

Put that in perspective: “Carmaker VinFast revealed that it has secured a 1.2 billion USD incentive package from the North Carolina state for its electric vehicle manufacturing project in the US.” The state has given Robbins literally a drop in the bucket in our tax dollars compared to over a billion in corporate welfare being showered on a communist country to built stupid, coal-powered battery cars that nobody wants. South Carolina attracts Boeing, Mercedes, BMW and Volvo. Cooper can only get an unknown company from communist Vietnam. Pathetic. Drinking water is a bit more important than showering communists with our hard-earned money.
