The article reports that funding shortfall could bring wastewater infrastructure to crisis in Providence, Rhode Island. Samuel Gray work lives on in Providence. More than 100 years ago Providence's city engineer traveled to Paris to study its sewer system. When Providence's system came online in 1901, it was just the third in the United States, securing its place at the time as the cutting edge of wastewater treatment. Some of the work that Gray designed, like a treatment plant, still operates in Providence even as it and other components are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
