Tom Curtis of the American Water Works Association talked about the state of the nation’s water supply infrastructure. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates the federal government must spend $380 billion to replace and repair the aging systems that carry the nation’s drinking water. However, the current federal spending levels for clean water and wastewater infrastructure would be about $2 billion yearly. Mr. Curtis talked about the amount the government spends on infrastructure, the condition of the nation’s water lines, processing and storage centers, and what could occur if those systems were not updated.
