"In lots of U.S. cities, one of the most pressing infrastructure needs is a service everyone uses but no one likes to talk about: sewers. More than 40 years have passed since President Nixon signed the Clean Water Act into law. Many older sewer systems and wastewater plants built with federal money now need upgrades. And this time, local communities will have to pay the bill."
"Now, we all know that water and sewer is not a sexy issue, but it is an absolutely fundamental - and it's absolutely fundamental to everything that we do." said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez.
