Flint announces completion
of $17 million secondary
water pipeline project
Mayor Sheldon Neeley of Flint, Mich.,
announced that a $17 million secondary
water pipeline project, which will ensure the
city a backup water source in emergencies, is
complete, Flint Beat reported.
The announcement came eight years after
the start of the Flint water crisis, the article states.
The Flint water crisis began in 2014 when
the city began taking water from the Flint River
without treating it properly, contaminating it
with lead, the Associated Press reported. Former
Gov. Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency
in Flint in 2016. Snyder, his health director and
other ex-officials are facing charges connected
to the lead-contaminated water and deadly
outbreak of Legionnaires' disease.
Neeley said in a press release that the
secondary water pipeline is another step toward
rebuilding trust in the Flint community.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
requires having a second pipeline to be
used in case of an emergency. Now, Flint
has the primary pipeline connected to the
Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA), and a
secondary pipeline connected to the Genesee
County Drain Commission (GCDC), Flint Beat
reported. Both organizations source their
water from Lake Huron.
Michigan provided more than $350 million
to Flint, in addition to the $100 million from the
federal government, to help with water quality
improvements, pipeline replacement, healthcare
and more. Flint has conducted excavations to
determine service line material composition at
about 95 percent of the residential locations.
The service line replacement program is
scheduled to be completed in 2022.
EPA, NJ announce $588M
in water infrastructure spending
More than half a billion dollars in federal and
state funds will go to nearly 30 water systems in
New Jersey, serving about 6 million residents,
or about two-thirds of the state's population,
officials said Friday.
The combined federal and state funding of
$588 million in low-interest loans will cover
an array of projects: In Newark, the state's
biggest city, some $25 million will go toward
lead service line replacement; in suburban

Philadelphia's Moorestown at the North Church
Street Water Treatment Plant, where officials
unveiled the funding on Friday, about $20
million will cover new filters to remove radium
and other toxins from water; in rural Clinton, a
water system is getting almost $3 million as part
of a water main extension project.
The funding includes $221 million from the
Environmental Protection Agency under a 2014
law known as the Water Infrastructure Finance
and Innovation Act. The remainder comes from
a mix of state funding and from the sale of
bonds from the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank,
a state authority that finances road, water and
other projects.
Long Beach, NY officials
approve $123M to reroute
sewage out of channel
Long Beach City Council members approved
a $123 million bond on Tuesday for a fully
federally and state-funded project to reroute
the city's sewage out of Reynolds Channel,
according to Newsday newspaper.
The bonds, to be reimbursed through
federal and state funds, will be used to
convert the city's current wastewater
treatment plant into a pump station and
build a 3.5-mile pipeline under Reynolds
Channel that connects to the Nassau County
treatment plant at Bay Park in East Rockaway.
" This is one of the most regional significant
effects we'll see in our lifetime. It's going to
eliminate seven million gallons of wastewater
pumped into the bay. It will eliminate nitrogen
and be a benefit for the ecosystem and
the community, " Long Beach Public Works
Commissioner Joe Febrizio said. " In three years,
the city will be out of the sewer business. "
Long Beach's conversion is part of a threepart
$500 million project that will transfer
Nassau County's sewage from Bay Park,
11 miles under Sunrise Highway,
to the Cedar Creek treatment plant in
Wantagh before being pumped through a
3-mile outfall pipe into the Atlantic Ocean.
In addition to the Bay Park Conveyance
Project, plans also would look to install
sewers in Point Lookout, where most waste
is being transferred through leeching basins,
Febrizio said.
Officials said the project, which has been
14 years in the making, would reduce ammonia
and nitrogen levels in the bay. By transferring
the sewage, the project would remove 5 million
gallons of treated sewage the city pumps daily
into the bay and 65 million gallons treated and
pumped into Reynolds Channel at Bay Park.
The 19,000-foot pipeline will connect the
new Long Beach pump station to Bay Park
and decommission the rest of the city's sewer
treatment facilities. It also would open 4 acres
of city-owned bayfront property on Reynolds
Channel near the Long Beach Recreation Center
by Long Island Rail Road tracks, facing Harbor
Isle and Island Park.
The city is under a consent decree to
finish the project with the Department of
Environmental Conservation and has permits to
solicit bids for construction.
