CA to ease flow of EPA funds for drinking water

State to ease flow of EPA funds for drinking water: Responding to threats of a federal cutoff over unspent money, the Department of Public Health says it will improve monitoring and accelerate spending.

California's Department of Public Health issued a plan Monday to improve the distribution of federal money for safe drinking water projects following a threat from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency this spring to cut off further funding unless the money was spent more effectively.
