Web pages cater to the water sector and local officials

Communities depend on aging drinking water, wastewater and storm water infrastructure for the health of people and the vitality of the local economy. With the release of the Wastewater and Drinking Water Infrastructure Sustainability Policy last fall, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) took the next step to work with the water sector as it moves towards more sustainable practices. The agency has launched an enhanced set of Web pages to provide information and resources for meeting the water infrastructure challenges faced in communities across the country.

To support local officials as they meet these challenges, the updated Web pages also have a new section specifically for local officials. The pages provide information, resources and materials designed to meet the needs of local officials committed to leaving a legacy of sustainable water infrastructure. It provides information that every local official should know about their community's water infrastructure and offers concrete, achievable steps that they can take to put their community on a more sustainable path or enhance existing efforts to address its water infrastructure needs.
