Thursday Headlines: Illinois Gets $258 Million for Clean Water from Stimulus

The EPA says that the state of Illinois will receive $258.5 million in stimulus money to go toward clean water projects. The state is to receive $179 million in its clean water fund and $79.5 million in its drinking water fund.

After a roundtable discussion Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio), the mayor of Wapakoneta says he has a new-found confidence his city’s infrastructure needs will receive some federal assistance. The city needs and estimated $30 million for combined sewer overflow project.

 Travel on the main road through Carson City, Nevada was restricted this morning because of  a water main break. Nevada Highway Patrol says motorists should avoid the area, and use an alternate route.

The Ohio EPA and 20 Columbus-area communities have signed an agreement intended to reduce sewer overflows. Under the agreement, communities are required to investigate their sewer lines in coming years to determine where excess storm water and groundwater enters their systems.

A water main break dumped gallons of muddy water and debris on to San Francisco streets this morning, and continues to affect water service to some customers. Investigators don’t know yet what caused the rupture but it most likely succumbed to old age.
