Kentucky congressman Ben Chandler presented the city of Harrodsburg, with a $1.3 million appropriation for improvements to a wastewater treatment plant.  The improvements will benefit about 3,000 customers and will keep the facility in compliance with state regulations.

In Salt Lake City, a water main break made a mess of roads near the Capitol and damaged some homes Tuesday morning.

A water main break in Rowan County, Kentucky has forced a shutdown of the school system.  Maysville Community and Technical College also canceled classes because of the problem.

An estimated 7,500 gallons of sewage spilled this morning into the Santa Margarita River from the USMC base at Camp Pendleton in Southern California.

Stimulus Spotlight
In California, the Santa Clara Valley Water District will vote on a plan today to build a new $52 million recycled water facility at a water pollution control plant in San Jose.  Financing for the project includes $11 million from the city of San Jose, $3 million from the state and$8.25 million from the economic stimulus funds.

Federal stimulus funds and a partnership between sewer districts are making possible a total rehabilitation of the Slater, South Carolina sewer system built in 1928. The $2.2 million in stimulus money will construct new lines and allow Slater’s Sanitary Sewer District to take ownership of the system once it is constructed.
