Give Communities Options to Prioritize Wastewater and Stormwater Projects
WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump signed the bipartisan legislation, the Water Infrastructure Improvement Act, championed by U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) into law. The bill helps protect drinking water by enabling communities to prioritize water infrastructure projects with integrated planning approaches that best address the needs of ratepayers.
Senator Fischer released the following statement:
“Everyone wants safe and clean water. That’s why we were able to build consensus and bring this bipartisan, bicameral measure over the finish line. Now communities like Omaha will have more flexibility to update water infrastructure and protect drinking water in a more effective and affordable manner.”
