Need for Water Infrastructure Improvements Front Page News in DC

The Washington Post featured an above-the-fold front page story on the state of water and wastewater infrastructure in D.C. and the rest of the U.S. “Although they are out of sight and out of mind except when they spring a leak, water and sewer systems are more vital to civilized society than any other aspect of infrastructure,” the article declares after decrying the failing state of the water and sewer infrastructure in Washington. At a Senate Hearing last month, the Committee was briefed on a new American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) study, showing it will take $335 billion to resurrect water systems and $300 billion to fix sewer systems. The article declares, “[t]here is no better illustration of the looming national crisis than the District’s system.” AGC hopes that this will be an eye-opening read for decision-makers as the presidential campaign cycle begins in earnest and the second session of the 112th Congress gets into swing.
