FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 10, 2018

 

CELEBRATING WATER for INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK, May 14-21

RAINWATER HARVESTING SUPPORTS WATER INFRASTRUCTURE, AND

CREATES A SAFE, RELIABLE WATER SUPPLY

 

 

Infrastructure Week (http://infrastructureweek.org) is a national week of education and advocacy that brings together American businesses, workers, elected leaders, and everyday citizens around one message: It’s #TimeToBuild.  Every year leaders and citizens around America highlight the state of our nation’s infrastructure – roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, the energy grid, and more – and encourage policymakers to invest in the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous, and safe.

The bipartisan Steering Committee and over 300 affiliates host events, drive media attention, and educate stakeholders and policymakers on the critical importance of infrastructure to America’s economic competitiveness, security, job creation, and in the daily lives of every American. As a business, union, non-profit, government, or an individual who depends on infrastructure, you have an important story to tell. Find a way to participate and tell America that it is Time to Build.

Farmers, factory workers, commuters, school-children – all Americans – need efficient, affordable, and reliable infrastructure. Roads, bridges, rails, ports, airports, water and sewer pipes, the energy grid, broadband… infrastructure is vital. It is the foundation of our jobs, quality of life, economic competitiveness, and even national security and public safety. Yet the nation’s transportation, water, energy, and communications infrastructure is under-funded, poorly maintained, and inadequately designed to meet 21st century needs. Water systems and energy grids were designed generations ago, and roads and bridges are falling apart.  There is a massive gap between the need to invest in our infrastructure and current funding. Now is the time to build something better.

And this is where ARCSA plays important lobbying and technical roles to promote onsite rainwater and stormwater supply solutions, both regulatory and technical.  Not just large, regional water moving projects, but small, decentralized, onsite harvesting systems, which would keep fiscal resources in the local economy.

The mission of the 501(c)6 (ARCSA.org) is to provide resources and information on rainwater and stormwater collection, to promote the advancement of rainwater conservation and to work with government at all levels in promoting rainwater and stormwater management. The ARCSA Foundation 501(c)3 (arcsafoundation.org) mission is to serve as the global resource for rainwater and stormwater harvesting by promoting research, education and thought leadership, focusing on general education and rainwater collection and use system research.   For more information, please contact Heather Kinkade, Executive Director ARCSA, at 480-289-5761 or info@arcsa.org.
