Statewide Conference Call for City Leaders

Wastewater Infrastructure Funding Roundtable with Congressman Peter DeFazio

The LOC was joined by Congressman Peter DeFazio on April 2 for a virtual roundtable discussion of legislation that seeks to help communities upgrade wastewater infrastructure and address local water quality challenges. Congressman DeFazio serves as chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and recently introduced H.R. 1915, the Water Quality Protection and Job Creation Act of 2021, a bipartisan bill that will provide an infusion of federal assistance for the construction, repair and replacement of the nation’s network of wastewater and stormwater conveyance and treatment facilities.
