A waterline break in Kannapolis, North Carolina has washed out the westbound lanes of state Highway 3 and has caused a road closure which is expected to cause major traffic issues for the remainder of the week.  

Headlines
Several hundred students were dismissed from the middle school in Stanton, Delaware this morning after a water main break left the school without water service.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has levied a $15,150 fine against the city of Coos Bay for an incident last June when the city’s wastewater plant in Empire discharged water with too many suspended solids and too little oxygen.

Stimulus Spotlight
Virginia Senators Jim Webb and Mark Warner announced that Wythe County has received more than $4.4 million in grants and $7.4 million in loans from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for improvements to water treatment systems.

$18.7 million from the economic stimulus will help three Mid-Missouri towns with improvements to their water systems.
