Access to safe drinking water is a human right.Too many communities have aging infrastructure without enough resources to fix problems. Too often, communities turn to private water companies for a quick fix that ultimately hurts ratepayers.Private water providers have a proven track record for neglecting infrastructure needs, hiking rates and generally mismanaging drinking and wastewater provision. Municipal water systems should be operated and owned by local, democratically elected councils — not by big companies accountable to shareholders.The federal government should continue to provide funding for water infrastructure so that everyone in America can have access to locally managed, safe and clean drinking water. With many systems advancing in age (some more than 100 years old), we need this funding more than ever. We must renew our commitment to public water.Sign the petition below to ask your lawmakers to support access to safe and locally managed drinking water for all!
