Declining Construction Spend Raises Questions for Water Sector

20 November 2017
Research Note

In September 2017, the U.S. Census’ monthly construction report further highlighted a downward trajectory in water supply and sewage and waste disposal spend. This negative trend, which has been ongoing since 2008 for water supply, has begun to undermine the confidence of companies across the municipal water sector’s value chain.

The bigger questions addressed in this Research Note include: Is it real? What is the reporting methodology? What factors are influencing this trend? How does it stack up against Bluefield’s projections?

In the wake of tightening municipal budgets, environmental violations, and aging infrastructure, the municipal water and wastewater sectors are undergoing a change that has longer-term impacts on supply chain strategies, private participation in water, and overall investment.

Bluefield water experts put the data in context and lay out a perspective of the construction spend in the water and wastewater markets going forward.
