A top official says he warned contractors about the possibility of plumbing issues at the new airport terminal back in 2016.
Documents released yesterday show an email exchange from three years ago where a contractor asked to lower costs by cutting back on plumbing hangers which are now being blamed on the terminal's pipe issues.
Kenner Code Enforcement Director James Mohamad says his office warned the mayor and council about the potential for these problems.
Contractors are currently working to repair more than 100 breaks in sewage pipes underneath the new billion-dollar North Terminal at Louis Armstrong International Airport.
