From Invisible to Invaluable: Changing the Way We Think About Water Infrastructure

1069-1826_VOW_LogoRevised_050614a[1]

Communities across the country rely on aging water infrastructure systems in need of repair. Yet for too long, water has been the “unseen infrastructure.” We are at a critical moment in time when addressing U.S. water infrastructure must become a national priority.

To address this disconnect, the Value of Water Coalition hosted an in-depth conversation on the current condition of water infrastructure in the United States, the consequences of letting these failing systems worsen, and solutions to meeting the water challenges of today and tomorrow.
