Water is essential for all life. In addition to the water we drink, we use water to grow our food, to make concrete and steel, and to create nearly everything else we produce, consume, buy, and sell. But today we face water scarcity and pollution that threatens our economic growth and our health. All too often, low-income communities and people of color bear the brunt of our water problems.
We desperately need to clean, protect, and conserve America’s water. We can create jobs in the process—jobs that pay well and form pathways to the middle class—all while making our communities, economy, and planet healthier. We can achieve these goals by investing in water infrastructure.
