WSSC One Drop at a Time

After initially releasing a plan that made the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission ineligible for stimulus grant dollars because of its relative wealth, the Maryland Department of the Environment has now issued a revised funding list. Under the new plan, WSSC gets both $4 million in grants and $2 million in loans for projects. This amount is a drop in the bucket given that WSSC requested $75 million for shovel-ready projects. After months of headlines about severe and record-number breaks and leaks, it is clear we need more.
