A water main break in the village of Cedarville, Ohio has left almost everyone in the small community without water. Village officials are doing everything it can to get the water line fixed and the water back on for residents.

The Parish Police Jury in Ouachita County, Louisiana is preparing to begin a $225,000 wastewater improvement project at its correctional center that will save future maintenance costs for the small town of Richwood.

The Town Council of Middletown, Rhode Island has approved a emergency contract order for immediate repairs to a collapsed sewer line. The collapsed sewer line is believed to be due to age.
