Water pouring into SEPTA subway station

Over on the blog Young Philly Politics, Brady Russell posted a video of something troubling he saw during his commute. Water is pouring through the roof of the Fairmount Station on the Broad Street Line. Check it out below. SEPTA did not respond immedately to a request for comment. We'll let you know if we hear anything. If you're seeing similiar problems, let us know. UPDATE: SEPTA says they sent out a crew to the station. The water flow was due to a clogged drain at street level. The drain has now been cleared.

About this blog
Every year, city government spends slightly more than $4 billion. Where does all that money come from? More importantly, where does it go? Are we getting the most bang for our tax buck? “It's Our Money” is a joint project between Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, funded by the William Penn Foundation, designed to answer these questions.
