Ohio has most stimulus-funded water projects

Published: Wed, May 26, 2010 @ 5:26 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A review by federal officials says Ohio has more stimulus-funded projects involving clean water and drinking water than any other state.

The report released today by the Government Accountability Office says the state’s Environmental Protection Agency has funded 336 water projects using about $281 million in stimulus money.

Of the projects, 118 met a “green reserve” requirement, including installation of a turbine that converts methane gas into electricity at a wastewater treatment plant.

The report also says the Ohio Department of Transportation was able to fund an additional 51 projects with its $936 million stimulus allocation because bids have averaged about 10 percent below the state’s cost estimates. The department had awarded contracts for 339 of 393 planned projects as of late April.

Cambridge, are you really that stupid not to realize this is for the good of us all, You probably don't have kids and hope all die if it wasn't done. Get a grip man, even though it costs a lot it is for the good of our children. You must be one of those serial killers hoping your buddies will do Obama in.

Stop using the kids as an excuse. This stimulus money is going to cost us more than some of these projects are worth. We need to find better ways to fund these projects because if we continue to borrow money from China which is dumb in the first place the US will not be around much longer.
