Support Letters Urged for WaterSense Legislation

2014-09-18

congressThe Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) is urging its members and interested water stakeholders to write their Congressional Representatives and Senators immediately to urge the passage of S. 2771/H.R. 5363, the Water in the 21st Century Act.

This landmark federal bill (identical versions were filed in both the House and the Senate) would provide official authorization for the WaterSense program at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and authorize funding of $50 million for the program over the next four years.  The legislation would also authorize $800 million in federal grants to mitigate water systems against the effects of drought, and provide federal loans and loan guarantees for recycling, storage and integrated management projects.  

Please forward any copies of support letters that you send to the AWEThank you for supporting WaterSense!
