Water and Wastewater


The Failure to Act: The Economic Impact of Current Investment Trends in Water and Waste Treatment Infrastructure report shows that our nation’s drinking water and wastewater infrastructure is aging and overburdened, and that investment is not keeping up with the need. However, a modest increase in investment in drinking water, wastewater, and wet weather water quality measures can prevent future economic losses.

Making this investment in infrastructure will:
• Protect $416B in GDP
• Protect almost 700,000 jobs
• Avoid personal income losses of $541B
