Across the country, tens of thousands of people work to maintain the public infrastructure and services that we depend on every day. This week is set aside to honor those men and women. Jason Auman is one of them. On a daily basis, he cleans out the storm water drains for the City of Concord. It's dirty work, which involves peering into pipes and blasting water to unclog them. WFAE's Lisa Miller spoke with him about what it's like doing that kind of work.
