The U.S. Army is expected to begin an estimated 5-year sewer reconstruction project at the Badger Army Ammunition Plant near Baraboo, Wisconsin that could cost between $1.2 and $2 million dollars. The work needs to be completed before the Army turns over the land to local control.

The former public works director for Lake Ozark, Missouri has received three years’ probation and a $5,000 fine for failing to report raw sewage discharged into Lake of the Ozarks.

Deciding to use an ultraviolet light disinfection system in the expansion of its water treatment facility will save the town of Newburgh, Indiana about $100,000 in construction costs, and also will be more friendly to the environment.

Stimulus Spotlight
In Ohio, Butler County has received $1.7 million in grants and loans from the economic stimulus for a expansion of a treatment plant project and construction of a water storage tank. The projects are expected to create a few dozen construction jobs. County officials must bid out the work by the end of September.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced that five communities in Mississippi are receiving stimulus funds to improve their water systems.
