Two large areas of Lansing, Michigan’s streets are getting ready for construction as the city’s Combined Sewer Overflow Control Construction project gets underway for 2010. The city needs to install storm sewers, sanitary sewers and water mains to keep raw sewage from flowing into local rivers.

After a water main break this morning, the fourth water main break in three years for a section of Overland Park, Kansas, some residents along say they are fed up.

Monday started out in an unexpectedly soggy way for some residents in Fort Worth, Texas after a 54-year-old water main broke flooding eight homes.

Stimulus Spotlight
The USDA has awarded a roughly $9 million grant and a roughly $12 million loan from the economic stimulus funds to the Netarts Oceanside Sanitary District in Oregon  for a new sewage treatment plant.

The Village of Ellsworth, Wisconsin is looking at alternatives and plans to help improve the village wastewater treatment plant, contingent on receiving grant and stimulus money.
