Addressing the Critical Importance of Rebuilding
Our Nation’s Water & Wastewater Infrastructure
For the first time ever, leaders from private and public sector across the region are coming together this fall in Chattanooga to discuss ideas and solutions to strategically address and rebuild the southeast region's water & wastewater infrastructure.
No longer “out of sight, out of mind.”
According to ASCE's 2013 report, the state of Tennessee alone has reported $3.5 billion in water infrastructure needs over next 20 years and another $1.4 billion in wastewater infrastructure needs over next 20 years.
On a national level, the American Water Works Association estimates approximately $1 trillion is needed over next 25 years, for water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure.
