New federal legislation may soon fund aging water infrastructure repairs

Communities throughout the Northeast are dealing with aging water infrastructure systems. One of which is the Village of Waverly. The village’s system consists of tanks, pumps and pipes. There’s an issue though, the infrastructure is aging. “We have pipes from 1890, 1920, 1930,” Pat Roney, the village’s water plant operator, said. “It’s in need of an upgrade, there’s no doubt.” An aging infrastructure could mean damages to the system and an increase in water contamination. Waverly, however, is not alone.
