Liquid Assets: The Story of Our Water Infrastructure

August 20, 2008

Liquid Assets, a ninety-minute documentary, tells the story of essential infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and stormwater. These systems — some in the ground for more than 100 years — provide a critical public health function and are essential for economic development and growth. Largely out of sight and out of mind, these aging systems have not been maintained, and some estimates suggest this is the single largest public works endeavor in our nation’s history.

“We have about 2 million miles of pipe in this nation. If you look at what we’re spending now and the investment requirements over the next twenty years, there’s a $540 billion difference.”
—Steve Allbee, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
