Thursday’s Water News: Water Service Restored to Albuquerque Neighborhood After Main Break

Water has been fully restored to a Northeast Albuquerque neighborhood after a water main break disrupted service to about 50 homes and businesses on Wednesday night.

A 15-inch water main break in Hamilton Township, New Jersey yesterday morning collapsed a portion of the roadway and caused minor discoloration in residents’ drinking supply.

City commissioners in Lake Wales, Florida have moved closer toward improving the city’s wastewater plant by unanimously approving two resolutions to secure funding from the Florida revolving funds program to improve and expand the plant to handle the city’s growing capacity. The entire project is expected to cost $4 million, most of which the city hopes to obtain from state funds and not pull extra funding from an already tight city budget.

Beaches along a two-mile stretch near Ballona Creek in Los Angeles were reopened to swimming and surfing two days after an estimated half-million gallons of raw sewage spilled into a storm drain that leads to a tributary of the creek.

Stimulus Spotlight
For years Telluride, Colorado has been planning to build a new water treatment plant but thanks to the economic stimulus that plan may now become a reality. The Town Council has given preliminary approval to issue $10 million in Build America Bonds to pay for the project’s construction.
