Monday Headlines: New Technology to Help Chico, Calif. Monitor Sewer System

Posted in California, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, National, New Jersey, New York, Virginia at 11:16 am by bengann

New sewer monitoring technology will allow Chico, California to keep a better eye on its sewer system and plan ahead to avoid future problems.  The meters will monitor the amount of water going through the sewer system, without having to pay someone to monitor the sewers during winter rainstorms.

In New York, boaters and other Hudson River enthusiasts will need to take a break from the watertoday because Westchester County is planning to release 2 million to 3 million gallons of treated sewage through a Yonkers pump station in order to make a repair to the waste system.

A sinkhole slowed traffic on U.S. 1 in Woodbridge, Virgnia on Saturday. A split water main caused the hole to form around 8 a.m., leaving a gas station in the area without water. Traffic was reduced to only two lanes – one southbound and one northbound.

Broken water mains in Watchung, New Jersey forced affected residents to boil their water on Saturday.  

Government officials and financial experts are warning that a freeze in the market for municipal bonds could cause major delays nationwide in government projects as basic as replacing water pipes.
