The Water Reality
Every day, 6 billion gallons of water is lost due to leaking pipes. This translates to over 2 trillion gallons of treated water lost each year. Currently, the United States has a rating of D from the ASCE for its water infrastructure. Over the next 20 to 30 years, an estimated investment of $1 trillion will be necessary to maintain our water systems and meet the high demands as we continue to grow. With an estimated $150 billion investment needed for infrastructure maintenance through the year 2025, only $45 billion of that has been provided. The funding needed to maintain and repair this infrastructure is not being met. This discrepancy is leading us towards a large water crisis within the next 20 to 30 years if not properly handled.
The Wastewater Reality
The wastewater infrastructure faces largely the same issues as water. In the next two decades, it is estimated that more than 56 million people will be added to centralized treatment systems. This will drive the funding requirement for infrastructure maintenance to well over $271 billion. With the pipeline infrastructure reaching a critical age in need of replacement, the sewer system could become even more of a threat than the water crisis. Wastewater infrastructure in the United States currently has a rating of D+ from the ASCE.
