On 24 January 2018, Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) released a working draft of a revised fiscal plan to address capital improvement projects, including recovery efforts from hurricanes Irma and Maria. Prior to the hurricanes, Puerto Rico was already facing significant water quality issues.

Puerto Rico is moving from acute emergency management to long-term disaster recovery. Capital improvements related to the hurricane are expected to exceed US$720 million between 2018 and 2022, further squeezing an already struggling system.
