Tuesday’s Water News: Engineering Plan Drops Price of CSO Project

More detailed engineering plans have reduced the price tag of Plattsmouth, Nebraska’s combined sewer overflow project by more than $1 million. The new estimate has reduced the cost of the project to nearly $6.2 million.

Headlines
Approximately 30 homes in Denville, New Jersey were without water for several hours today following a six-inch water main break. It is the third water main break in the area in the past three days.

A boil-water advisory will remain in effect overnight for part of Pompano Beach, Florida after a water main that broke on State Road A1A snarled southbound traffic and caused some residents to lose water service.

Stimulus Spotlight
Akron, Ohio will use federal stimulus money and a state loan to pay for $7 million in repairs to its sewer system. The city has so far failed in its attempts to obtain additional stimulus money to pay for even more extensive repairs needed to its system.

Some residents in Scott County, Virginia  will have sewer service for the first time after Congressman Rick Boucher (D-Va.) announced yesterday that $1.8 million in stimulus funding will be used to construct a new wastewater system for 100 residents and an elementary school.
