Cities across the county are making major investments in their water infrastructure systems – drinking water, wastewater and stormwater – in order to deliver clean water to homes and businesses and to provide clean surface water for enjoyment in community parks and waterfronts. The investments also provide an opportunity for living-wage jobs and neighborhood improvements. This webinar will explore projects underway in New Orleans and New Jersey to maximize the community and economic impact of water infrastructure investments.
