Monday’s Water News: Home Freezes Over in Kansas City After Water Main Break

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:57 pm by bengann

A Kansas City, Missouri home looked more like an igloo this weekend after a water main break caused water to shoot high in the air where strong winds then blew the water into a resident’s front yard and all over his house. The affected  homeowner had to use spray de-icer, and a propane torch to melt the ice on his front lock just to get inside his house.

Several Minnesota lawmakers say additional funding is needed for the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System, which will serve rural communities in Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota. The water system is now under construction, but at its current funding level, it won’t be finished for 38 years.

In Texas, the city of Lubbock has already spent millions of dollars on sewer improvements and is looking to spend even more. The city is building a new wastewater treatment plant in the Southeast portion of the city and is considering construction of a new wastewater treatment plant in the Northwest part of the city.

Stimulus Spotlight
Communities in California, Florida and New York will issue Build America Bonds this week to help fund construction of water and sewer projects. The program is schedule to end on December 31.

Hamlin County, West Virginia’s wastewater treatment project is moving towards its third phase. The current second phase of the project is nearing completion, having been funded with economic stimulus funding.
