Spending on water and wastewater in the USA is the highest it has been in a decade.

In the short term, the COVID-19 crisis has had significant implications on the shape of the US water market, but it has also created opportunities for private sector businesses who can support utilities with constrained budgets in recovering lost revenues, reducing costs and in finding new sources of revenue. This report is an essential study of the implications of the pandemic on the US water sector, and it also provides the most comprehensive long-range analysis of the US market on a national and state-by-state level.
