The members of Jersey Water Works drafted a letter to New Jersey’s congressional delegation. Sent on January 27, 2021, the 56 signatories called on them to support critical investments in our state’s water infrastructure. New Jersey’s communities continue to confront issues including aging infrastructure, lead in drinking water, combined sewer overflows, and polluted waterways. With the added burden of the COVID-19 economy, the funds needed for these infrastructure investments exceeds the resources available to local and state governments, making a federal infrastructure investment essential.
The letter details five steps the federal government can take to ensure safe, clean drinking water for every New Jerseyan.
