The US has a wide spread infrastructure problem. This doesn’t just affect bridges and roads, but the water we drink as well. Communities across the country, and in the Northeast in particular, lack access the safe drink water due to pipes that haven’t been replaced for a hundred years or more. Since the 80s, federal funding for Clean water infrastructure has shrunk by 80%, which means our already struggling state and municipal budgets have had to pick up the slack. Here in CT, that means that out cities and towns have not been able to get their hands on the funding to make necessary improvements and retrofits to keep our water clean and drinkable. CCE is pressure our federal lawmakers to fund these drinking water projects so that we can keep our communities healthy and safe!!!
