STIMULATING: Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola speaks at the ceremony.

Central Arkansas Water broke ground this morning on a new $6 million water treatment facility (Thanks to Twitterer Jordan Johnson for the photo).  Governor Beebe was on hand for the announcement.  The utility will use liquid instead of gas-based chemicals to treat water for over 400,000 Arkansans.  Other utilities across the country are moving in the same direction.  Funding for the project comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), otherwise known as the stimulus package we hear so many bad things about.  The project will include the construction of buildings and installation of equipment at two treatment plants.  Press release here.  More info from CAW here.
