Over the next decade, municipal utilities have set the stage for over US$683 billion in  capital improvements to address deteriorating piping networks, combined sewer overflows, and rising population demands on treatment plants and distribution networks. The scope of these utility infrastructure improvements varies significantly by region, state, and municipality.

This new report from Bluefield Research analyzes the trends and opportunities for water infrastructure investment across the U.S municipal utility landscape. Central to Bluefield’s 50-state forecast methodology is the analysis of capital improvement plans and spending allocations for utilities in 100 major U.S. cities.
