Join Manufacturers in Making Safe Drinking Water a Priority

There’s perhaps nothing more important for our health and well-being than access to safe drinking water. 

And there are devastating consequences when we neglect our water infrastructure, as we’ve sadly seen in places like Flint. But right now, you and I have a chance to help fix things. 

Please join Alliance for American Manufacturing in urging Congress to pass the Water Resources Development Act of 2016 with strong Buy America provisions.

The infrastructure that brings water to our homes is essential for our quality of life. When water systems fail, people get sick – and some even die.

America’s overall water infrastructure is in bad shape. Many water systems are failing, and recent drought and flooding are pushing even more systems to the brink.

We’ve got to do something about it. The good news is that investing won’t just safeguard our health – it also will help America’s bottom line, as one-fifth of the U.S. economy depends on clean water. 

Every $1 we spend on water infrastructure improvements generates $6 in returns. And if we ensure taxpayer dollars are spent on American-made materials like iron and steel, we will create new jobs and invest even more in the American economy! 

Tell Congress to pass this crucial legislation to ensure there is a safe, dependable drinking water system for all Americans.
