Rural aWater Releases Report on Water Infrastructure Projects and Economic Stimulus Legislation THE NATIONAL RURAL Water Association is releasing a report on water infrastructure projects funding for consideration in any federal economic stimulus legislation. The report, “12 Weeks & 1 Day,” details why the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s water infrastructure funding program is a meritorious approach for any water infrastructure stimulus, green jobs creation, and public health improvement. The report lists billions of dollars in specific ready-to-go projects – and why the USDA process is the fastest federal program in moving water projects to construction. USDA’s water program is one of the best approaches to create green jobs. The agency estimates that $1 billion in backlog funding could create up to 23,000 related jobs, greatly improve public health, promote community-based economic development, and, in some cases, allow rural families to receive piped-water for the fi rst time. The report is available at: www.ruralwater.org/ 12weeks&1day.pdf.
