Infrastructure Bill Delivers Major Victory for Western Water Users
With President Joe Biden’s signature on the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in November, a national coalition representing thousands of Western farmers, ranchers, businesses, and rural and urban water providers declared a victory for Western water users and called on the Administration to immediately clear the path for projects that will address critical Western water supply needs.
“This is a great victory for Western water users,” said Family Farm Alliance Executive Director Dan Keppen. “The Western water provisions included in this legislation represent a once-in-a-generation federal investment that will bolster our aging water infrastructure and keep water flowing to our nation’s farms and ranches. It will also improve our ability to provide water supply reliability for cities and the environment in future droughts.”
