Government Technology: Akron, Ohio, city administrators are buying a new drug testing machine to avoid potential delays in prosecuting crimes, replacing equipment to catch speeders and installing a $1.43 million roadside gutter system to stop contaminants from falling into the city's main supply of drinking water.
The gutter project will stretch the length of state Route 14 over Lake Rockwell in Portage County, Ohio. Chris Ludle, deputy director of Public Service, told city council Monday that the project, when completed next year, would capture and divert everything from road salt to the potentially hazardous contents of a ruptured or overturned tanker truck, even during heavy rainfall.
