Senator Tarr’s Statement on Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Reform Bill

Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) released the following statement regarding today’s filing of comprehensive drinking water and wastewater infrastructure reform legislation in the Senate, a bill Senator Tarr is co-sponsoring:

“Water is a critical element of life, and we all must work to ensure that it is delivered sustainably and cost-effectively.  By expanding state partnerships to include support for conservation efforts, promoting efficiency and careful planning, this legislation holds the promise of helping cities and towns address clean water and wastewater needs without putting municipal budgets in jeopardy and without having to rely on a crisis to get local infrastructure the attention it deserves.”
