Water Infrastructure Investment: We Can All Be Partners in Progress

The nation’s water infrastructure is woefully in need of repair and upgrading to protect public health and create jobs. And in fact, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the nation's drinking and wastewater infrastructure a D grade in its recently released 2013 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure.

The good news is that awareness about the state of this most vital service and the reinvestment needed to address it is growing. Clean water is an essential common denominator in everyone’s quality of life, and the need for infrastructure investment is the subject of concerted efforts in the water community to build awareness and support.

The National Water Infrastructure Summit takes place April 16 in Washington, where the need for resilient water infrastructure systems and the impact on job creation and a strong financial future will be discussed by a panel of national experts on water and economics. This event is a key activity of the Water forJobs: Water Puts America to Work (WFJ) campaign, which has the support of 18 national partners and 34 of its Member Associations representing more than 31,000 water quality professionals.  The Summit is free and will be discussed in the social media orbit and live video-streamed to spread the word as widely as possible.

Following the Summit is the popular Fly-In on April 17 and 18, when water professionals will meet with legislative leaders and decision-makers to carry a united message about the value of water and infrastructure investment. The Fly-In is co-sponsored by the American Water Works Association and WEF, another example of how partners can work effectively together to raise public awareness.

I am very much looking forward to participating in both of these programs. And I hope you will join us for the Summit and help to make water infrastructure reinvestment a priority for your community.
