Funding for Water: Comprehensive Article

Posted on March 9th, 2009 by Water Nymph in Heroes

fundingforwaterDavid Engle over at Water Efficiency has written an impressively complete article on the state of water funding in the US right now. With availability of money acting like a game of peek-a-boo, it’s nice to know know someone has kept track of “this drastically altered funding landscape.” In Hard Times, Money for Water,Engle starts with an overview (“Who in their right mind ever votes against water?”), he goes in depth with Pennsylvania as typical, with an enormous gap in the cost of water and the income from water and sewer billings. California, too, gets a detailed analysis, and emerges with some positive trends that are heartening.

Most helpful, though, is “the complete list of federal grand- and loan-making agencies and status, as of early 2009.” This is a must read for any water conservation professional.
