How we think about water infrastructure is about to change! Last year President Biden signed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) into law.
Right now, the majority of the country has no plan in place for storm related toxic chemical leaks. Improperly managed storage facilities can devastate a community’s drinking water.
The unprecedented investment in water infrastructure baked into the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act has the potential to transform communities that have long been overlooked. Implementation of the act will be tricky, and will require vigilance from water advocates.
