Fix Water Infrastructure in the United States of America sign now

The American Water Works Association estimates that as many as 36 states can face serious water shortages in as little as 5 years, and currently the US is in no way prepared to handle such an event. In a time when America should be concerned with conserving water and reducing costs, we as a nation lose 1.7 trillion gallons of water and therefore $2.6 billion a year in lost money, due to broken pipes.

Bettering water infrastructure is a huge undertaking for the simple fact that different aspects of its management and maintenance are overseen by different entities. The federal government, state and local governments, and private institutions are all responsible for at least one area of water infrastructure. However, it is these private companies that are solely in charge of mapping and maintaining our water infrastructure. Due to the number of water main breaks and the amount of money it is costing our citizens, it is easy to conclude that they have not been successful thus far with the increasing maintenance required by our old pipes.

We ask the government to have more regulation over the country's water infrastructure and allot more funding towards its maintenance.
