NACWA member testifies in Senate infrastructure law hearing

Apr 6, 2022

On April 5, members on a Senate subcommittee heard testimony from a utility member of the National Association of Clean Water Agencies during a hearing on the Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act.

Members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Fisheries, Water, and Wildlife heard the testimony of Josh Schimmel — executive director of the Springfield Water and Sewer Commission in Agawam, Mass., and member of the NACWA Board of Directors — during the hearing “Implementation of the Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act: Stakeholders’ needs and experiences.”

The Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act (DWWIA), which was ultimately included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), allowed Congress to advance updates and reauthorizations to programs impacting drinking water and wastewater infrastructure – such as the Drinking Water and Clean Water State Revolving Loan Funds and Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act program.
