In Salisbury, Maryland, the Wicomico River remains under a health advisory after 48,140 gallons of partially treated wastewater overflowed from a wastewater treatment plant effluent manhole. The spill was the second this week and the fourth overall this year.

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewer District announced it had a sewer overflow volume of 2.9 billion gallons between June 7th and 15th.

Denver Water crews worked into the early hours Friday to repair a ruptured 12-inch water main that left an 18-foot-wide sinkhole on South Monaco Parkway causing major traffic problems.

A sewer repair project that started in mid-May will stretch throughout Portland, Oregon’s downtown core for the next seven months at a cost of $5.8 million.
