Quick Summary of America’s Water Infrastructure Act

As you may know, President Trump just signed a key piece of legislation, America’s Water Infrastructure Act (S.2800 or AWIA).

We’ve summarized the four main areas, or titles, below:

  • Title I: The US Army Corps of Engineers can now proceed with proposed port, waterway, flood protection, and other water infrastructure improvements.
  • Title II: More funding allocations to our nation’s drinking water systems will provide safer, improved water quality.
  • Title III: Eliminating regulatory permitting hurdles, this paves the way for hydropower as an clean, sustainable, renewable energy source.
  • Title IV: This will drive much-needed stormwater and wastewater infrastructure improvements powered by long-term, low-cost supplemental loans to help finance those advancements

If you have any questions about planned or proposed projects related to AWIA, please contact us.
