In the fourth event of our “Overcoming Challenges and Seizing Opportunities: Implementing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law” series, the Bipartisan Policy Center, National Association of Counties, and National League of Cities will host Karen Dettmer, Managing Director for Infrastructure Implementation at the Environmental Protection Agency for a discussion on the agency’s work to guide and support investments in our nation’s water infrastructure.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides the EPA with about $60 billion to invest in infrastructure—including the single largest investment in water infrastructure ever from the federal government—that has the potential to bring tangible benefits and jobs to communities in need. But leveraging these federal dollars for maximum impact will require strategic and efficient deployment of resources along with coordination with states, counties, cities, and other federal agencies. Join us to hear more about these challenges and the EPA’s plans to address them.
