    but I'm not sold on having the federal government doing local water mains.  If my city is collecting local taxes and fees to upkeep the water system (we pay nearly $90 a month for water and sewer), why should another town neglect their system because they only charge $50 a month.  And then they want all of us to pay for maintenance that the local government is responsible for?

    I could see a low interest loan for cities.  But a grant doesn't seem right.  Unless the grants are evenly distributed based on population, then each city could use it to update or improve whichever projects they want.  But it would have to be for capital projects, not just plugging operational budgets.
