Diverse Coalition Urges Congress to Avoid Drastic Cuts to Water Infrastructure

The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) joined a diverse group of stakeholders today in telling House leadership that drastic cuts to programs supporting the Nation’s water quality are strongly misguided.  The letter icon-pdf was signed by 14 organizations representing state environmental regulators, municipal water interests, environmental organizations, contractors, engineers and recreational enthusiasts.

“While NACWA recognizes the austere budgetary times under which the federal government must operate these same circumstances are being experienced in municipalities and rate-paying households across the Country,” said Ken Kirk, NACWA’s Executive Director.  “At a time when water quality is suffering and regulatory burdens on local communities continue to increase we must ensure that we do not lose the water quality progress we have worked so hard to achieve.  The proposal before the House runs that very real risk.”
