A second lawsuit has been brought against the city of Benicia, California for sewer overflows. At issue in the case is a city sewer line that has backed up and overflowed into the plantiff’s side yard several times over the years.

Portage Township, Michigan has received a grant from the USDA totaling 75 percent of the cost of the project to install a sewer line

Oregon environmental regulators have fined the city of Portland $16,000 for two failures in one of the city’s sewer lines last year.

Recent storms contributed in Baldwin County, Alabama to another sewer overflow after heavy rain swept through the area.

More than a mile of sewer line will be replaced under a bid approved by officials in Bowling Green, Kentucky on Monday.
