Water is the thread that weaves together our daily lives.
Access to safe and reliable water is fundamental to the health of our communities, the well-being of our families, and our own prosperity and dignity. However, costs related to inflation, water utility operations and maintenance, repairs to aging infrastructure, and much-needed innovations are rising. All of these investments are needed for a more secure water future, but in the U.S., water customers largely bear cost increases and an increasing number of households are unable to pay their bills.
17% of U.S. households struggle to afford basic water services, but local utilities and their customer assistance programs are bringing hope (and clean water!) to communities across the country. Duke 2023
