The city of Danbury, Connecticut is set to begin in March a $4.5 million sewer interceptor project.  The project has been talked about for more than 40 years and should be completed by the end of 2011.

A water main break at an intersection in south St. Louis continues to hinder motorists and residents 24 hours after it began. A 20-inch water main continued gushing despite efforts by city workers to shut it off. The break has resulted in about 60 to 70 homes in the area having no water.

Owners of houses built before the early 1970s in the Milwaukee area could be required to spend at least $3,000 on top of local property taxes for mandated sewer repairs and foundation drain changes on their properties, as part of a new effort to reduce sewer overflows and basement backups.

Plans are moving forward in Greene County, Indiana to create a regional sewer district which will manage the operations of a new wastewater treatment plant.

Hundreds in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania are being asked to boil their water before using it after a water main break this evening.
