Research Note

On 12 February 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its FY2019 Budget Proposal, totaling US$6.14 billion. If executed as proposed, this budget will slash agency funding by 23% below 2018 levels.

Since 20 January 2017, 41 environmental rules and regulations have been repealed, or are under review. Of these, 13 will directly, or indirectly, impact investment in water and wastewater treatment and management infrastructure.

In this Research Note, Bluefield water experts analyze the potential impact of these EPA rollbacks on industry verticals, water infrastructure, and state funding.
