Untapped Potential: Water Infrastructure Spending in New York (February 2019)

Untapped Potential: Water Infrastructure Spending in New York examines how successful New York's Water Infrastructure Improvement Act (WIIA) has been at addressing the state's growing water infrastructure crisis. Created in 2015 by Governor Cuomo and the Legislature, WIIA provides critical grants, which enable municipalities facing financial hardships to fix corroding water mains, repair sewers, and upgrade wastewater treatment plants, among other projects. Since 2017, WIIA has been funded through the Clean Water Infrastructure Act.
