The U.S. has over one million miles of pipes that carry the country’s water supply. However, many of those pipes are aging and becoming out-of-date. With water impacting every American’s life, investing in our nation’s water delivery systems is crucial. The need to invest in water delivery systems over the years has only increased and is a more pressing issue. The problem is not just aging pipes. The sources of the drinking water are also becoming out-of-date, which include depleted aquifers and inadequate storage. As land and population distribution continue to change, new demands emerge.
