'Buy American' rule clogs plans for U.S. sewer upgrades

'Buy American' rule clogs plans for U.S. sewer upgrades: "Contractors are searching the United States in vain for filters as well as bolts and manhole covers needed to build wastewater plants, sewers and water pipes financed by the economic stimulus. As officials wait for federal waivers to buy those goods outside the United States, water projects from Maine to Kansas have been delayed."

I work in the water industry using equipment from Slovakia, France, Germany, Switzerland, Korea, Mexico, Canada, the USA and China. I'm glad the Canadian government hasn't gone "full retard" and put a similar clause on our projects.
