For the second time in a year, a sinkhole stopped traffic on a busy street in Greensboro, North Carolina, revealing the city’s aging water infrastructure. City engineers say it could take several decades before most of the pipes in the Greensboro’s older neighborhoods are refurbished

In Seattle, a main line break that sent raw sewage into Elliott Bay from the Edgewater Hotel has been temporarily fixed.  The upscale hotel had been inadvertently pumping raw sewage into Puget Sound since Friday after the hotel’s main sewer line broke. A permanent fix will take about a week to finish.

The sanitary sewer district in Richmond, Indiana issued a sewer overflow alert after heavy rains in the area.

Residents of three suburban Philadelphia communities are still being urged to boil their tap water after a water main break on Saturday.
