Water is in the news these days. Droughts. Lead in drinking water. Rate hikes.
The plight of Flint, MI, residents raised serious questions about the safety of that city’s drinking water. While early questions revolved around health effects related to lead pipes, the problem shined a spotlight on the city’s aging water delivery infrastructure. Unfortunately, Flint is not alone…many other U.S. cities and towns also are facing water infrastructure challenges.
