Debate Continues Over Responsibility for Covington Drains

Whose responsibility is it to clear out clogged drains on Twelfth Street after this week's heavy rainfall and flooding?

The Sanitation District said it's the state's responsibility because 12th/MLK is a state thoroughfare. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said that while they built the drains, their maintenance is the responsibility of the City of Covington and the Sanitation District (SD1), according to WKRC.

Reporter Rich Jaffe was on the scene Wednesday afternoon and as his live shot began, workers from SD1 were removing the clogs.
