More than a billion gallons of stormwater and sewage flow into the District of Columbia's rivers every year, and there is a belief that George Hawkins is the man to fix it.
White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew is President Obama's expected pick to lead the Treasury Department, with an announcement possible before the end of the week.
President Obama's nominee to oversee the federal budget is amending his latest government ethics filing after misreporting the date he left his job at Citigroup Inc. - addressing questions about his eligibility for a nearly $1 million bonus weeks after the company was bailed out by taxpayers.
Mr. Hawkins and Mr. Lew say the maintenance will create jobs.
