The article reports that the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC), suburban Maryland's embattled public water utility, last week approved two measures that will allow previously delayed bond-funded projects to proceed. The commission's six-member board signed off on a $10 million project to design a water supply main to serve the WSSC's two counties, Prince George's and Montgomery, and also gave the go-ahead to continue planning on a nearly $80 million project to renovate the utility's Potomac Water Filtration Plant.
