A 12-inch water main break on Meadowlands Parkway in Secaucus, New Jersey halted traffic and left a number of residents without water on Friday.

Headlines
Maple Shade Township, New Jersey is set to receive almost $1 million from the state to rehabilitate and maintain sewer and water pipes.

The city of Buffalo, New York has received a $2.1 million grant from the state of New York for a combined sewer overflow abatement project.

Stimulus Spotlight
Construction of a new water treatment facility is well under way in Salem, New Jersey and is on schedule to be completed sometime in May of next year. The plant will be capable of treating two to three million gallons of water per day — well beyond the city’s current needs — which will allow for increases in capacity as population increases, or if new businesses seek to come to the area. The project is being funded through $5 million in federal stimulus and a low-interest state loan.

Buckeye Lake, Ohio is adding 1,700 feet of water lines thanks to $479,000 in economic stimulus funds.
