Headlines
The water main break that shut down a street in Dayton, Ohio for several hours Tuesday morning spilled about a million gallons of water into the street. The break in the 90 year-old high pressure main is likely due to age.

The water supply for Toledo, Washington’s 699 residents was shut off today because of a break in a water main. All three schools in Toledo were closed early as a result of the break.

Stimulus Spotlight
In California, after 10 years of trying, the Napa Sanitation District is on the verge of providing recycled water to irrigate Napa State Hospital’s sprawling landscaped grounds. The project is estimated to cost $3.8 million with $1.5 million of the funding coming from the economic stimulus.

The sewage treatment system in Genesee County, Michigan is getting an upgrade, thanks to help from the economic stimulus. $10 million dollars in economic stimulus money is being used to make facilities more energy-efficient and to increase capacity.
