Troubles for HNTB?

Portions of the humungous storm water detention ponds on the County Grounds, the key element in an $84 million flood abatement project, are washing away.

The designer for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District project is HNTB, Wisconsin's favorite political donor and highway engineering contractor (could those two things be related?).

MMSD says it's investigating the matter to find out what went wrong. Who's gonna end up paying to fix this? Stay tuned....
