Water Infrastructure: Show Us the Money

arra_sealThe federal government’s vigorous attempts to get the economy moving are producing gushers of money for water projects of all types. The American Recovery Reinvestment Act of 2009 allocates large amounts to water infrastructure, but it’s far from the only source: There’s the Water Quality Investment Act of 2009, changes to the tax law to allow more money for private activity bonds for water projects, and a good number of other water-related bills. Add to that a long list of earmarks sending money to legislators’ home districts and you have a lot of money. The trick is to ferret it out.

It caused the famous 19th century London fogs, and it killed 19 people in Donora, PA in 1948 when a temperature inversion trapped smoke from the surrounding steel mills against the ground. The latter incident helped to get pollution control regulations off the ground, even though there had been sporadic attempts as far back as 1306.
