U.S. Private Water: Key Trends, M&A Activity, and Market Outlook Q3 2021

At this rate, 2021 acquisitions could surpass the 2020 total by the end of Q3, begging the question of whether the growing rate of acquisitions is the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a more permanent market shift, or just more aggressive players in the market.
