State to launch $1 billion in water projects
CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois officials say they're ready to launch a $1 billion program to improve water quality and fix outdated infrastructure.
That means fixing broken water mains, constructing wastewater treatment plants and upgrading sewers.
Gov. Pat Quinn says the initiative will create about 28,500 jobs. Details of the plan were expected to be released Thursday afternoon during an event with EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.
