Texas requires US $3.5 billion of water and wastewater CAPEX investment annually for the next ten years — and municipal utility districts could represent a significant portion of this investment to meet growing demand.  A reinvigorated housing market will further drive infrastructure buildout, including pipes, plants, pumps, and advanced water metering solutions.

This market insight is available to Municipal Infrastructure Insight clients.  For more state-by-state analysis of infrastructure needs, see Bluefield’s new report: US Municipal Water Infrastructure: Utility Strategies & CAPEX Forecasts, 2016-2025.

Takeaways

  • Texas housing starts to rebound, increasing CAPEX needs
