Water is a lifeline for not just clean drinking water but for the health and safety of our citizens. Furthermore, it is an essential economic resource for many businesses. Because of this, investment in water infrastructure is needed to benefit generations to come.

That grade reflects a “mediocre” condition with “significant deficiencies.” While it is an improvement from the 2017 grade of D-, it is clear that more must be done to support investments in clean water infrastructure.
A wide number of organizations continue to advocate for further investment in water infrastructure as discussions continue at the federal, state and local levels.
