George Hawkins is stepping down as head of DC Water, but he leaves at a moment when the agency is facing criticism over how they bill consumers for stormwater runoff.
The way we shop has changed, but the way deliveries work hasn’t. Instead of purchasing items from brick-and-mortar retail stores, a rapidly growing number of items are bought online, but delivery companies like the U.S. Post Office and FedEx are still using the same delivery models as they did prior to the e-commerce boom. In an increasingly dense, urban environment like the Washington metropolitan region, an ever-larger number of delivery trucks are clogging city streets, often idling and blocking traffic on one way roads. Kojo explores the unintended consequences of e-commerce– city streets congested with delivery trucks– as well as potential solutions.
