Best Municipal Fashion Statement: Water Treatment Plant No. 4 Polos

For as long as the Water Treatment Plant No. 4 debate's worn on – some three decades and counting – it's amazing someone just now came up with the idea to emblazon the waterworks' logo on a shirt! Austin Water is selling a WTP4 polo-style shirt for $20.97, featuring the plant's logo on a soft Lands' End shirt. Whether you think the plant's a needed infrastructure upgrade or an expensive mistake, it's yours – irony not included.
