Support Water Initiatives in Infrastructure Planning

Water Environment Federation

Investing in the country’s water infrastructure is critical. Water infrastructure impacts all Americans, as it protects public health and the environment and drives the economy. In fact, closing the investment gap in water infrastructure would generate more than $220 billion in annual economic activity and generate 1.3 million jobs over 10 years.

Recently, the President released his 55 page outline for legislation to establish several new infrastructure funding programs, streamline the regulatory review process for projects, improve workforce development programs, and other federal facility and management priorities.

Meanwhile, House and Senate Members in both parties are developing their own plans. 

As these plans are vetted and debated and hopefully a final, bipartisan plan is turned into law, it is critical to include federal investment in water infrastructure.  Support for increased funding for water infrastructure is essential to safeguard public health, protect the environment, promote economic growth, and ensure community resiliency.
