Taken together, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act provide over $60 billion for water projects including replacing lead pipes in homes and schools, testing for and treating PFAS chemicals in water, and investing in drinking water and wastewater systems, particularly in underserved areas.


A new website called Just Infrastructure provides information about water spending to address drinking water and wastewater needs and water needs related to climate change such as flood protection and drought defense strategies. The website includes stories of communities where federal dollars are making a difference, and social media resources free to use in order to raise awareness about water needs and federal responses.


Website developers write, “We developed this campaign to help advocates show and tell why water funding matters, and equip reporters to write infrastructure stories that focus on benefits rather than cost. We’d love your help sharing the materials on social media and your networks.” The website is a project of Water Hub, a communications team working to support water advocates. Check the Just Infrastructure website and help spread the word about why water matters.


In February, the Biden Administration announced details of water infrastructure funding provided through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). EPA has also developed a map with stories of water investments, "Investing in America’s Water Infrastructure" storymap.
