S&WB Suffering From Manpower Shortage

Equipment woes aren't the only problem facing the New Orleans Sewage and Water Board.

Our TV news partner FOX 8 reports the agency is also reeling from a significant manpower shortage. The agency is working to fill about 300 vacancies and has been only able to hire about eight people a month.

City officials are partnering with an engineering firm that has led to the hiring of four additional pump operators.
