Cardin Legislation to Fix America’s Water Infrastructure Problems Forms Base of Water Resources Development...

U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), a senior member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, praised the bipartisan effort to finally move forward sweeping reforms and support to our nation’s drinking water systems by providing new federal tools to address many of the issues faced as our water infrastructure crumbles due to age and growing demands. The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) contains language first introduced in 2009 by then Chairman of the EPW Water and Wildlife Subcommittee Cardin, from S. 1005, the Water Infrastructure Financing Act. In addition to other Cardin-authored bills, WRDA includes much of S. 2821, the TRUE LEADership Act (Testing, Removal and Updated Evaluations of Lead Everywhere in America for Dramatic Enhancements that Restore Safety to Homes, Infrastructure and Pipes Act of 2016), a comprehensive effort introduced earlier this April by Senator Cardin with 29 of his colleagues that recommits the federal government to a critical role in water infrastructure investment, lead remediation and the strong drinking water protections provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
