Millions for area water projects
(2007-11-09)
(WOUB) -
Several million dollars for water projects will be coming to Southeast Ohio thanks to a veto override yesterday in Washington.

The Senate enacted a 23 billion-dollar water resources bill...which includes 21 million dollars for a Hocking River tributary restoration project.

Senator George Voinivich says another five million dollars will go to Lawrence County for a Union Rome Sewer District wastewater treatment plant...while four million dollars will come to the Burr Oak Regional Water District for a water treatment plant.

And there's one million each in the bill for Meigs and Vinton counties for water lines.
