THE CURRENT STATE OF AMERICA’S INFRASTRUCTURE
Sustainable and efficient infrastructure is central to maintaining a safe and resilient community. Proficient public infrastructure connects communities, promotes health, fosters equity, and enriches the quality of life on an individual level. It goes without saying that the proper maintenance of public assets is often a complex and difficult task—however—it is vital to securing the safety and success of future generations.
Whether it is supplying clean water or providing adequate roads, millions of Americans depend on you as infrastructure owners and utility organizations to fulfill these essential needs. However, you and your teams are often overburdened with trying to maintain the integrity of your community’s aging assets, while also staying within the constraints of a limited budget.
The reality is that for years public infrastructure has been largely underfunded and is rapidly aging, becoming outdated, and in some cases unsafe. The American Society of Civil Engineers has pointed out that the U.S. has underinvested in its infrastructure.
It's not for lack of trying. You work hard to maintain the infrastructure in your community—often with constrained resources and little support from outside stakeholders. Now, your organization has a significant opportunity to significantly change how you fund and manage critical infrastructure replacement projects.
DIGITALLY TRANSFORMING YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE
There has been renewed interest in infrastructure from the U.S. federal government. A handful of new bills and packages aim to increase funding for infrastructural improvements in the U.S. Many local government and utility organizations are already gearing up for significant opportunities to upgrade and reinvigorate their infrastructure. Several policies aim at increasing federal funding to aid communities in updating public assets ranging from water and wastewater networks to bridges, roads and improving resilience for an aging power grid.
