WATER POLL: WILL U.S. VOTERS SUPPORT FUTURE CANDIDATES BASED ON WATER RELIABILITY AND FUNDING FOR AGING INFRASTRUCTURE?
American Business Water Coalition to issue U.S. Water Infrastructure Funding and Business Risks Survey, gauging views on water quality, risks to businesses and local economies, and solutions to address infrastructure funding needs and growing operational challenges.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Media Advisory) How do voters across the country rate the condition of our water infrastructure and are current funding levels high enough to support businesses and communities? A new national survey from the American Business Water Coalition (ABWC), the “U.S. Water Infrastructure Funding and Business Risks Survey,” will answer these questions and inform key issues, including how views about the quality of drinking water stack up against the growing perception of water infrastructure in disrepair, and voters’ desire for Congress to fix it for future generations.
With unprecedented cuts to the Drinking Water and Clean Water State Revolving Funds (SRFs) being proposed by Congress, ABWC will publish the findings of the U.S. Water Infrastructure Funding and Business Risks Survey, including a detailed survey document and executive summary, on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at 9 a.m. ET. To download the survey results and the national press release on Wednesday, visit: www.businesswatercoalition.com.
In addition to view on the business-related impact of water, the new ABWC Survey examines the level of U.S. voter support for elected officials who back increased funding for clean and reliable drinking water. It also examines whether voters are inclined to elect representatives who don’t support increased funding for safe and reliable drinking water.
