Ingram Road Pumping Station

Ingram Road, about a 1/2 mile South of I-40

West Memphis, AR

West Memphis is the lesser-known and more humble cousin of Memphis, TN just to the east across the Mississippi River. I've spent the night here a few times during my travels at a Motel 6 near this suburban neighborhood. It appears to be a fairly low-lying area that might be prone to flooding in heavy rains and this ditch that drains the neighborhood flows away from the Mississippi River and out into the farming country to the west. These imposing pumps beside Ingram Road sit exposed for inspection by all who pass, although few probably much notice them...unless they stop working.

I don't have a magic bullet here, but companies need to start acknowledging that there is a qualitative difference between developers. Making all of them wear the same weighted yokes to ensure the least among them doesn't screw up is detrimental to overall morale and efficiency of the whole. (James Turner)
