Governor's Task Force Cites PA's $36.5 Billion Water Infrastructure Need; Report Underscores Call for Additional Investments
Date:10/31/2008

Voters Asked to Approve $400 Million Election Day Bond Referendum to Support Water, Sewage Systems

HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell pointed to a report issued today that measures the unmet financial needs of Pennsylvania's deteriorating water and sewer infrastructure and warns of an impending crisis unless the state significantly changes the way it funds these systems.

This approach leads us into a situation like the one we find ourselves in now--where much-needed system maintenance and repairs are put off until a later time and creates additional expenses and a backlog of unmet needs."

The 30-member task force of business leaders, legislators, government officials and industry experts created work groups to gather and analyze information on existing water infrastructure and examine possible solutions to funding capital repairs and upgrades to drinking water a
