Thanks to all the structural engineers on CNN, we now know what to call the crumbling concrete in Peaville….. spalling. Spalling starts when the concrete is exposed to wet conditions repeatedly, and the rebar that gives the concrete stability rusts. The rust causes the concrete around the rebar to crumble and fall off. This creates weakened support structures and the building collapses.
Perryville is famous for its poor drainage. After a mild rain, the drains don’t work, and design flaws in engineering are glaring. The whole damn place is flooded.
Have State structural engineers ever inspected this place since it was built in 1973? We tried to find out…..and hit a concrete wall. If any of our readers know who to call, let us know, in the meantime, we’ll sic the media on them.
