Yet another water main break in Charlotte may disrupt the rush-hour commute. Water is bubbling up through the asphalt in the middle of the southbound lanes, and the water is undermining the roadbed, as the pavement is buckling, according to a witness on the scene.

In Miami, a woman driving eastbound toward Key Biscayne on the Causeway was the stranded when her Toyota Corolla got stuck in a sinkhole. A 12-inch water main pipe gave way, flooding the hole, and creating the hazard. 

An appropriation of $800,000 is making its way through a House committee with the funding to be applied to the cost of the new $15.5 million water treatment plant under construction in Middletown, New York.
