 Rising costs and compliance challenges drive IOU acquisitions. As the U.S. rolls out new regulations for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances and other pollutants, utilities are looking at increased capital investments. These trends—coupled with higher costs for energy and chemicals—support increased private participation in the sector. Amid an increasingly competitive M&A market, owners of distressed systems across the board are offloading risk and capitalizing on higher purchase prices. 

This analysis highlights key trends, transactions, and competitive shifts in the U.S. private water market. Bluefield’s team of water experts tracks mergers and acquisitions (M&A), service contract awards, and federal, state, and local policy developments on an ongoing basis to provide the most reliable and up-to-date insights for clients addressing opportunities in water.
