An early morning water main break in Harrison Township, Ohio disrupted water service to about 60 homes and businesses in the area and created a large sink hole in the street. The 10-inch water supply pipe that broke had been installed in the early 1950s, and its age might have been a factor in causing the break.

In South Carolina, a 13th Circuit judge denied the City of Simpsonville’s request to dismiss lawsuits brought against the city by two residents over a sewer overflow that flooded their houses in September 2006.

In Albany, Georgia, state transportation officials say that it could take crews until the Independence Day weekend to re-open a highway damaged by a burst water main.

The State of Tennessee has served Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Holt with a notice of violation for an unauthorized sewer discharge from the jail sewer.

Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and state lawmakers are negotiating a state budget that would pump hundreds of millions of dollars into water and sewer construction projects.
