APWA Applauds House and Senate Leaders' Passage of Water Infrastructure Improvements for Nation (WIIN) Act

The American Public Works Association (APWA) commends Congress for passing S. 612, the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act. The WIIN Act includes provisions to invest in the nation’s navigable waterways, and water infrastructure. The projects and programs authorized within this final iteration of the Water Resource Development Act (WRDA) are essential to the public health, safety and welfare of all communities.

“This important legislation is needed as we’ve seen increases in the number and severity of damaging weather events exposing gaping vulnerabilities in the nation’s flood control infrastructure,” said APWA President Ron Calkins, PE, PWLF of Ventura, California. “It is essential this vital legislation is acted on, and APWA encourages President Obama to sign the bill into law before the end of this year.”
