FUNDING RESOURCES

  • This past week President Biden unveiled his American Jobs Plan, proposing a nearly $2.3 trillion investment in our national infrastructure. Does this bold plan do enough for rivers?

  • Climate change and the need for mitigation efforts for disaster control have resulted in more federal funding available for public entities throughout the U.S.

  • Conflict is all around us. Even the most well-run organizations will encounter conflict in their daily operations, and sometimes, healthy conflict is a sign that things are running well. The natural result of competing interests and limited resources, conflict can be an opportunity to refine and improve processes, outcomes, and relationships across an organization. When managed poorly, it can also be a serious hindrance to getting things done and deplete employee morale. In our personal and professional lives, people often go to great lengths to avoid conflict and the sometimes unsettling feelings it evokes, but is that really the wisest choice?

  • Like many parts of the economy, the engineering sector has been negatively affected by the COVID-induced downturn. Based on the federal government’s own numbers, the engineering and design sector’s revenue declined by 7 percent in 2020, and the ACEC Research Institute's newly released 2021-2025 Engineering Industry Forecast projects another 4 percent decline in 2021 before recovery begins to kick in during the second half of the year. The industry will grow modestly (3 percent annually) from 2022-2024, primarily due to pandemic-related stimulus spending, but then will tail off slightly in 2025.

  • What the recent water- and wastewater-related disasters in the U.S. should teach us

  • Due to limits in personnel or resources, small community water systems often have a tough time funding and implementing needed upgrades. A recent webinar on Leveraging Regional Development Organizations to Support Small Water Systems, hosted by the Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN), shows how collaboration can make a difference by integrating water-system concerns into a broader approach to overall community concerns.

  • Billions of dollars are spent each year to renew, replace, expand, or upgrade water systems. The need to do more, and spend more, increases each year. That’s because the country’s aging water infrastructure has been neglected for too long.

  • As water system owners contemplate retirement, they should also ponder the fate of their businesses and the options available for the transition of assets.

  • Industry leaders throughout America are sounding alarms about the dire state of water infrastructure in the U.S. A new report warns that too many public officials are ignoring repercussions that can be anticipated because of under-investing in drinking water resources and wastewater systems each year.

  • Large utilities need to maintain high levels of service when it comes to water and wastewater systems. If they do not they risk failures, fines, and costly reactive maintenance. This specific organization was looking to find a solution that could improve decision support models and monitoring data integrity.
