Connecticut state officials announced today that the towns of South Windsor and Stafford are among those in the state that will receive federal and state money for upgrades to their sewer treatment plants.

Placer County, California is waiting on a final recommendation to build a regional wastewater pipeline or upgrade a sewer treatment plant until after it has a better idea that it will gain a share of federal economic stimulus funds for the more expensive pipeline project.

In Laredo, Texas, an intersection remains closed after a break in a 20-inch water main break flooded a street and caused major problems for thousands of residents all around the city.

A water main break in Quincy, Massachusetts Tuesday morning left a nursing home and three houses without for more than six hours yesterday.

A sewer district in Chillicothe, Ohio which has received a $250,000 grant through the Appalachian Regional Commission to help offset the cost of sanitary sewer installation is ready to take the project to bid. The grant will help offset the approximately $1 million cost of the project.
