Pima money going down the toilet

Some areas of Pima County may be going down the toilet, but you can be sure our toilets’ wastewater will be flushed away with ease.

Pima County to receive $10M in stimulus funds for sewer system, Arizona Daily Star

Pima County will receive $10 million from the federal stimulus package to put toward improvements to the regional sewer system.

Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department will receive the money through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to put toward a regional interconnect that will carry wastewater between the Roger Road treatment plant and the Ina Road treatment plant.

This is a very good thing.

More federal funds for more projects would be even better.

No complaints, however.

Any money Pima can get from the government is a blessing.

Toilets are a pretty necessary commodity and our sewers should be something that stays in tip-top shape.


What other areas of Pima County would you like to see improved and why?

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
