In case you missed it, in the last round of heavy storms, Alex City's sewage overflowed it's overflow pond and a bunch of it went into the river that feeds into Lake Martin.  When they interviewed the city officials responsible, they said that it wouldn't affect the lake becasue by the time it got into the lake, it would be so diluted as to not matter.  They are now deepening and widening their overflow pond.  Beside the "ick" factor, I have to say that I don't know if this is true or not.  And while they were dealing with the problem, they found that they need to spend on the order of $38M to replace old pipes. 

I guess this is where infrastructure spending comes in.  No one wants to spend on infrastructure maintenance, until there is a disaster, and then, by the time they realize that something needs to be done, the cost is astronomical.
