Monday Headlines: Baltimore Residents Unwilling to Pay More

Posted in Arizona, California, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington at 4:54 pm by bengann

More than 80 percent of Baltimore-area residents say they’re willing to do “a lot more” to prevent water pollution, but they don’t want to pay more taxes to solve the problem, according to a newly released opinion survey.

In Mesa, Arizona, an 18-inch pipe burst in the East Valley effecting the morning commute for many drivers.

Waikiki announced it will remove 750 feet of a large sewer pipe, a significant milestone in a $45 million project to fix its aging sewage system.

About 1,500 gallons of raw sewage leaked from a pumping station in Paso Robles, California, after a piece of equipment failed. Before the spill was contained, some of the sewage leaked into a dry ravine and soaked into the ground.

The Governor of Pennsylvania’s Sustainable Water Infrastructure Task Force has scheduled meetings in eight locations to hear ideas about the best way to fix and fund aging and deteriorating public water systems across the state.
