SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - The Springfield Water and Sewer Commission has qualified for a $50 million low-interest loan that could help the Connecticut River run cleaner.

The money, in the form of loans at 2 percent interest, will be used to upgrade sewer facilities and dramatically reduce occasional raw outflows into the river.

Commission spokeswoman Jaimye Bartak tells The Republican newspaper that the Springfield project will involve building a new pump station and two new sewer mains under the river.
