Monday’s Water News: Aqua Pennsylvania to Spend $250M in Infrastructure Improvements

Aqua Pennsylvania has announced it has nearly $32 million worth of capital improvements in store for Chester County, including the replacement of aging water mains and two major distribution systems. The amount is part of the $250 million that the water utility is expected to spend statewide this year to maintain and improve its water infrastructure.

In South Carolina, the North Charleston wastewater treatment plant has experienced a sewage spill with more than 5,000 gallons untreated wastewater being released into the Ashley River after a sewer line broke.

Residents in Honolulu were asked to conserve water after a 16-inch main break. The main was installed in 1964 and supplies much of the water to the North Shore area.

Stimulus Spotlight
Ridgefield and Brookfield are among the Connecticut communities that have begun local drinking-water projects in time to meet a deadline for using federal economic-stimulus money.

Massachusetts State Treasurer Tim Cahill, who chairs the state’s Water Pollution Abatement Trust, has announced that the Trust has successfully committed and certified its $185 million allotment of federal stimulus funding to 115 local drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects.
