An ambulance in Indianapolis dropped nose first into a sinkhole this morning caused by a water main break. The street was covered in about two feet of water and the ambulance had to be towed from the sinkhole.

Headlines
Officials in Wilmington, Delaware urged thousands of city water customers to boil their water Saturday because of possible water-quality problems created by a water main break.

A mile-long sewer line in Taylors, South Carolina that was installed along State Route 290 15 years ago could be replaced and upgraded this year as the area anticipates future growth and development on the corridor, which lies on the outskirts of its fire and sewer district.

Stimulus Spotlight
Austin, Texas this week will begin a $31.8 million stimulus-funded treatment plant project that will create 150 jobs, increase energy efficiency and reduce operational costs.

The town of Louisville, New York will receive $6.79 million, or 65 percent of the project cost, in stimulus funds for a new water project.
