About Infrastructure Week

Infrastructure Week, a non-profit organization, annually convenes a national week of education and advocacy that brings together American businesses, workers, elected leaders, everyday citizens, and infrastructure sectors—including the clean water sector—around one message:  Let’s #BuildForTomorrow. Starting Now.

Each year during Infrastructure Week, leaders and citizens around America highlight the state of our nation’s infrastructure—including water and sewer systems—and advocate for fair infrastructure policy and increases in federal investment, among other issues.
