Water is vital to America’s economy and our quality of life. In fact, aging infrastructure and years of deferred maintenance is catching up, and the cost of inaction could be severe. A new economic analysis for the “Value of Water Campaign” found that a one-day nationwide disruption in water service would result in $43.5 billion in losses for the economy. This is just a single day and the damage would be widespread. From hotels to hospitals, shopping centers to schools, factories to farms, and restaurants to recreational facilities - everything would shut down without water service.
