Nov. 25, 2020 – As Congress negotiates a final budget, clean water advocates highlight value of water infrastructure funding for public health, economy and unity.
A community letter signed by organizations across America requests increased investment in water infrastructure as Congress negotiates the 2021 budget year before a Dec. 11 deadline. The House package includes an additional $11 billion for water infrastructure to prevent sewage overflows and drinking water contamination from lead and other sources. The Senate package fails to increase funding levels for EPA Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds.
