Let Your Project Needs in Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Be Heard

March 30, 2021

The Central States Water Environment Association (CSWEA) in collaboration with the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Water Works Association (AWWA-WI), the Wisconsin Wastewater Operator’s Association (WWOA) and the Wisconsin Rural Water Association (WRWA) is developing a document to advocate to our Wisconsin elected officials on behalf of the water industry for Water Week 2021 (April 25 – May 1, 2021).

This document will highlight water and wastewater infrastructure needs in Wisconsin, including shovel ready and soon-to-be shovel ready projects. Previous experience has shown that water and wastewater infrastructure funding provides a significant benefit to local communities as well as the entire state and region.

We are asking for your help to develop this list of projects. Please email your community’s name, the project name and the construction cost estimate to Chris Tippery, the CSWEA Government Affairs Committee Chair, at chris.tippery@rasmith.com by Friday, April 16, 2021. Your response will help us develop a comprehensive list of the water and wastewater infrastructure needs in Wisconsin that will provide our elected officials with the understanding and information to advocate for our state as part of the proposed Federal Infrastructure Bill.

We appreciate your support in this effort to demonstrate the needs and value of water infrastructure funding in Wisconsin.
