The Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Tuesday, March 29, at 10:30 a.m. (EDT) on federal efforts to update our drinking water infrastructure. The hearing is entitled, “Trusting the Tap: Upgrading America’s Drinking Water Infrastructure.”
“Access to safe drinking water is a fundamental human right, and it is absolutely essential to ensure we uphold and protect that right for all Americans,” said Pallone and Tonko. “Thankfully, Congress made a historic investment in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to tackle America’s crumbling water infrastructure, clean up dangerous PFAS contamination, and replace toxic lead service lines. We’re looking forward to exploring the significant impact this funding will have on our local communities, especially those that have been historically underserved. We will also discuss what more must be done to deliver clean, safe drinking water to all American families for years to come.”
This will be a hybrid hearing that includes both in person and remote member attendance via Cisco Webex video conferencing. Members of the public may view the hearing via live webcast accessible on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s website. Please note the webcast will not be available until the hearing begins.
