Water Infrastructure Protection Now on Tap

Our members who live and work in NJ deserve the highest quality water and sewage, which is why they helped usher the Water Infrastructure Protection Act into law. Following months of lobbying on behalf of the bill’s passage, it was signed into law by Gov. Christie in early 2015.

The new law ensures that our aging water and sewer infrastructure continue to fulfill the needs of our communities. It is vitally important to local municipalities, who would not otherwise be able to fund upgrades to their aging water infrastructure systems.

As an added benefit, many of these upgrades will provide construction work for our contractors and operating engineers.
