Water Privatization in Congress

Public Citizen’s Water for All Campaign is actively advocating for adequate federal funding for water and wastewater infrastructure and works to ensure that the federal government does not promote water privatization through legislation, regulations, and guidelines.

New report:
ALL DRIED UP: How Clean Water is Threatened by Budget Cuts
pdf document [697 KB] lays out the effect that cuts to the Clean Water State Revolving Fund will have on every state.   In addition to detailing how much federal assistance states stand to lose, the report estimates how many jobs the lost funding could have created, identifies projects that likely will not move forward, and provides the percentage of impaired waters, number of beach closures, and major causes of water pollution in each state.  The report is sponsored by a broad coalition that includes state and local governments, labor, construction, and environmental and public health groups.
