The City Council in St. Joseph, Missouri is hoping to convince residents over the next for months of the need to approve a $105 million sewer bond issuance on the April 5 ballot. The city would use the funds for projects related to its combined sewer overflow issues and  the amount of ammonia and other chemicals the system discharges  into the Missouri River.

Some residents in Mount Vernon, Illinois will soon be seeing some flooding reduction on roadways and on property as the city finalizes plans for a storm sewer project.
