NACWA stresses need for continued investment in water quality

Aug. 7, 2014

WASHINGTON — NACWA members collectively treat and reclaim more than 18 billion gallons of wastewater each day.

WASHINGTON — The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) emphasizes the need for persistent investment to ensure water quality and for support of viable watershed-based solutions to deal with complex water challenges, according to a press release.

The release stated that the Clean Water Act provided the direction and resources necessary for wastewater treatment agencies to significantly improve water quality across the country.

As agencies continue to work on improving water quality, in order to completely address the remaining deficiency, greater attention and resources must be focused on nonpoint sources of pollution, resulting from storm water runoff from agricultural lands and urban areas, continued the release.

The recent passage of the Farm Bill, especially the Bill’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP), is an important first step in improving water quality and facilitates partnerships between clean water utilities and agriculture to execute innovative nutrient management solutions, noted the release.
