Troubled Waters: The Case for Prioritizing Our Most Essential Public Service
Our nation’s water systems are on the verge of collapse; if nothing is done, the U.S. will face dire economic and public health consequences. Public Water Works! exposes the great need to reinvest in the country’s public water systems, and reveals the high value people in the U.S. place on safe, public water. This public sentiment is not reflected in the nation’s current investment priorities: water systems receive neither the attention nor the resources that are both necessary and valued by the public. The time has come for this to change.
