2 trillion gallons of treated water are lost annually due in part to aging water & wastewater infrastructure
The US currently has 1.6 million miles of water and wastewater pipeline, much of which is more than 100 years old. Every 2 minutes a water main breaks in this country, with more than 2 trillion gallons of treated water lost annually.
Pipeline challenges are made worse by the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. Experts forecast investment of $300 billion is needed within the water and wastewater infrastructure sector over the next 10 years.
