A new report from Green For All found that we could create nearly 1.9 million jobs and inject over a quarter of a trillion dollars into the economy by fully upgrading America’s aging water and stormwater infrastructure.
Every year, 860 billion gallons of raw sewage spill into our waterways – enough to cover the entire state of Pennsylvania one inch deep. Fixing that problem creates jobs.
Green For All’s report, available here (http://bit.ly/WaterWorksReport), shows that making the EPA’s recommended $188 billion investment – enough to manage stormwater and preserve water quality for millions of Americans – could have a huge short- and long-term impact. And the timing for the investment couldn’t be better.
Americans need clean water. We need clean jobs. This investment gives us both.
