Water infrastructure is the foundation of our health, economic well-being, and quality of life. Unfortunately, it’s widely accepted that America’s water infrastructure is aging faster than we can replace it. The most recent American Society of Civil Engineers Report Card gave our country’s water infrastructure a Grade D. But as communities try to grapple with the need to upgrade or replace their water and wastewater systems, some critical questions are often overlooked: How do I really know if my infrastructure is aging? And what does that mean anyway?
This webinar helped answer these questions. Participants learned what aging infrastructure is, how to figure out if their community really has it, and how to prioritize among competing infrastructure needs. The second session in this two-part webinar series focused on how to pay for needed infrastructure repairs and replacements.
This session was hosted by the Environmental Finance Center Network on December 16, 2014, in support of the Sustainable Communities Learning Network.
