Summary

The challenges of Flint have demonstrated the public health costs of navigating aging water infrastructure on the cheap amid limited public financial resources. Tales of cities dealing with breaking pipes and failing water infrastructure are becoming increasingly commonplace – events amplified even further by an increasingly hotter climate and growing populations. This panel will address the challenges and opportunities of both repairing and growing U.S. water infrastructure — with an eye toward solutions that focus on financing, innovation and the potential roles that business in public private partnerships (P3s) can play.
