Senate Passes Bi-Partisan Infrastructure Bill

On August 10, the U.S. Senate passed a bi-partisan infrastructure bill with $400M (over 5 years) in new funding for western states water efficiency through the Bureau of Reclamation’s Water Smart grant program.

AWE’s lobbying in DC, including a sign-on letter to congressional leaders, helped secure this funding in the bill.

AWE is working to secure even more water efficiency funding that would be available nationally as the U.S. House of Representatives considers the bi-partisan bill and other infrastructure legislation.
