Wednesday Headlines: Commission Seeks $12 mil for 22 Mo. Communities

The Clarence Cannon Wholesale Water Commission is seeking approval from the 22 communities it serves in Eastern Missouri to apply for a loan up to $12 million to expand service and make major infrastructure improvements. Financing for the project would likely come from a state grant and its revolving loan fund.

Taxpayers in Bardstown, Kentucky and nearly 20 other cities in the commonwealth are being forced to spend millions of dollars to correct problems with sewer overflows. Bardstown’s mayor says the city has begun building a new two mile long, $4 million dollar sewer line to help alleviate the problem and realizes they’ll have to spend more:

Roots that grew into a sewer line behind Gardner-Webb University are blamed for an untreated wastewater spill in Boiling Springs, North Carolina. Town officials reported Tuesday that out of the 4,000 gallons of untreated wastewater spilled, 3,000 gallons made their way to an unnamed area creek near campus.

After a delay of about 10 years, the city council of Vandergrift, Pennsylvania was told yesterday that the time to solve the sewage-stormwater overflow problem has arrived.

Flooding that has plagued homeowners in a Perrysburg, Ohio subdivision should be alleviated with planned sewer repairs approved by the city council, which authorizes $66,000 worth of repairs to the underground sanitary sewer system within the subdivision.
