Friday Headlines: Senators Decry Lack of Water Infrastructure Investment

Posted in California, Maine, Missouri, Wyoming at 4:51 pm by bengann

Montana and Wyoming senators wrangled with the Bureau of Reclamation’s commissioner over the lack of funding for major water projects in the West. Here’s a quote from Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.) on the issue:

“The water infrastructure in my neck of the woods, in the state of Montana and I think the West overall, is worn out. Some of it is beyond repair. We need to really make this a priority for this country”

In California, a sewage spill in Laguna Beach closes streets and beaches.

A water main break in North Waterboro, Maine has some residents under a boil water order.

Cross Timbers, Missouri will receive $733,000 from the USDA to finance the construction of a new wastewater collection and treatment facility.
