The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – enacted in November 2021 – is launching a new era of funding opportunities for drinking water and wastewater projects across the U.S. and U.S. territories. Here, AWWA offers resources and guidance for water professionals seeking to access this funding for local water projects.
Lead and copper enter drinking water mainly from corrosion of lead and copper containing plumbing materials.
While use of lead in plumbing materials has been banned for more than a quarter century, the release of lead into drinking water remains a serious concern.
AWWA has developed a robust suite of guidance to help water utilities understand policies, comply with requirements, and implement best practices. The AWWA Virtual Cybersecurity Forum will provide topical discussions and real-time solutions to help you keep your utility safeguarded from bad actors.
