The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) allows for specific infrastructure spending for water, sewer, and broadband investments. This legislation is vital for community resilience, particularly for rural, disadvantaged, and hard-to-reach communities. With these strategies, municipal leaders can prioritize the projects that benefit the communities they serve.
More than 800 communities across the country have adopted a stormwater utility to help fund stormwater management. Implementing a separate stormwater fee structure fairly allocates stormwater costs between residential and commercial customers.
As water systems across the country restructure and regionalize, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons. The benefits often outweigh the drawbacks, but each locale has a unique set of circumstances that make it hard to generalize.
